Jamie Bartlett: The Dark Net
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Bartlett talks about his experience immersed in the internet's most shocking and unexplored subcultures, from buying cannabis on the Amazon of drugs to hanging with Bitcoin anarchists to exploring the encrypted world of the Tor network. He will describe meeting the real people who are part of nets hidden spaces: trolls, neo-Nazis, illegal pornographers and self-harmers. The talk will consider the darker side of life online, and what online anonymity does to human behaviour and belief.
