I agree with much of what's been suggested, including about protecting
your data and yourself.

I would be happy to help. I just wrapped up a book project, titled
Weaving the Dark Web, based on participant observation, interviews, and
archival work on Tor hidden services, Freenet freesites, and I2P
eepsites. The book comes out next fall from MIT.

I also recommend the work of Monica Barrett, Alexia Maddox, Rasmus
Munksgaard, and Jakob Demant.

I want to begin with some small scale pilot research to orient the focus of the study, using a small group of interview participants. However, as a new-initiate of the Dark Web I am at a total loss as to how to recruit people. I was considering performing online interviews via known affiliate forums such as 8-Chan. However I am concerned that this will just solicit trolling.
