Sacrum w sieci - definicje, podejścia, sposoby badań oraz typologie
(Wydawnictwo Muzeum Śląskiego, 2022) Siuda, Piotr; Uniwersytet Kazimierza Wielkiego w Bydgoszczy
Nowadays, it is difficult to clearly separate the online from the offline, as both overlap in many spheres of human activity. The same applies to religion, because online and offline religious spaces are mixed together, with boundaries between the two becoming more and more blurred. The presented essay defines the so-called digital religion and highlights its theoretical approaches. This is used as a background to develop new typologies of what is religious on the Internet and create a coherent conceptual framework allowing for the digital religion to be mapped. Additionally, the essay proposes four levels of digital religion. Theoretical distinctions are illustrated with specific case studies from several areas. Cases described include: 1) religious influencers, 2) online rituals and 3) parodies of religion on the web.

Mapping Digital Religion: Exploring the Need for New Typologies
(MDPI, 2021) Siuda, Piotr; Uniwersytet Kazimierza Wielkiego w Bydgoszczy
Today, it is challenging to separate online and offline spaces and activities, and this is also true of digital religion as online and offline religious spaces become blended or blurred. With this background, the article explores the need for new typologies of what is religious on the Internet and proposes a conceptual framework for mapping digital religion. Four types of that which is religious on the Internet are presented based on influential classification by Helland. He introduced (1) religion online (sites that provide information without interactivity) and (2) online religion (interactivity and participation). Helland’s concept is developed by, among others, adding two types: (3) innovative religion (new religious movements, cults, etc.) and (4) traditional religion (e.g., Christianity or Islam). Each type is illustrated by selected examples and these are a result of a larger project. The examples are grouped into three areas: (1) religious influencers, (2) online rituals and (3) cyber-religions (parody religions). Additionally, the visual frame for mapping digital religion is presented including the examples mentioned. The presented framework attempts to improve Helland’s classification by considering a more dynamic nature of digital religion. The model is just one possible way for mapping digital religion and thus should be developed further. These and other future research threads are characterized.

Information Protection in Dark Web Drug Markets Research
(HICSS Conference Office Department of IT Management, Shidler College of Business, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, 2021-01-04) Harviainen, Tuomas J.; Haasio, Ari; Ruokolainen, Teemu; Hassan, Lobna; Siuda, Piotr; Hamari, Juho; Tampere University; Seinäjoki University of Applied Science; Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz
In recent years, there have increasingly been conflicting calls for more government surveillance online and, paradoxically, increased protection of the privacy and anonymity of individuals. Many corporations and groups globally have come under fire for sharing data with law enforcement agencies as well as for refusing to cooperate with said agencies, in order to protect their customers. In this study, we focus on Dark Web drug trading sites as an exemplary case of problematic areas of information protection, and ask what practices should be followed when gathering data from the Dark Web. Using lessons from an ongoing research project, we outline best practices for protecting the safety of the people under study on these sites without compromising the quality of research data gathering.
