Description

What is the impact of the web on global politics? Information disseminated through social networks is being used as a weapon in the battle between the individual and authority across the world. While that struggle for freedom captures the headlines, the web is also quietly shifting power permanently in ways we could never have imagined accelerating globalisation, providing us with new allegiances that cross traditional borders, reinventing warfare and creating frightening cultural dead ends. In this episode we explore the revolutionary impact of Twitter, PayPal, al-Qaeda's use of the web, the Great Firewall of China' and Russia's cyberwar with Estonia. ¬ęThe Open University
