Description

Has the web lived up to its early dreams of empowering us all with global, quick and free information? Building on its countercultural roots, how much is web culture challenging our notions of ownership, value and creative freedom? Online sensations such as Wikipedia, Napster, YouTube and the whole culture of blogging suggest a story richer and deeper than a simple great leveling'. The web is a continuing collision of cultures at play. As technological possibility clashes with human nature and our need to control things and make a profit, this creative tension makes the web a fast-moving and powerful phenomenon that has a grip on all our lives. ¬ęThe Open University
