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.
