Jamie Bartlett talks to Sarfraz Manzoor

The Dark Net

Hay Festival 2015 , 

The dark net is an underworld that stretches from popular social media sites to the most secretive corners of the encrypted web. It is a world that frequently appears in newspaper headlines, but one that is little understood, and rarely explored. The Dark Net is a revelatory examination of the most innovative and dangerous subcultures of the online world: trolls and pornographers, drug dealers and hackers, political extremists and computer scientists, Bitcoin programmers and self-harmers, libertarians and vigilantes. Bartlett is the Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think tank Demos.
