Radicals and the Dark Net: The Fringes of Society

  • This event has passed.

Jamie Bartlett

Saturday 14th October 13:00 - 14:00 | Northwood House

Beyond the familiar online world that most of us inhabit – a world of Google, Hotmail, Facebook and Amazon – lies a vast and often hidden network of sites, communities and cultures, a world that is as creative and complex as it is dangerous and disturbing. Talking about his books, The Dark Net and Radicals, Jamie Bartlett, Director for the Analysis of Social Media at the think tank Demos, broadcaster and presenter of BBC 2’s recent series Secrets of Silicon Valley, reveals what goes on on the fringes of society and the individuals, groups and movements who are rejecting the way we live now and attempting to find (some fairly startling) alternatives.
