Making the series
The Virtual Revolution was an open and collaborative production, which encouraged the web audience to help shape the series. For each programme, you can explore the debates around programme themes, watch and comment on interview and graphics clips, and download clips for personal use and re-editing.
The wonder and walls of Wikipedia; the blogger media revolution; who really has power on the web? Is it the online crowd or the 'gatekeepers'?
As the web transcends the barriers of the physical world the orthodox view is that the nation state will inevitably wither as a porous web of hyperlinks conquers the globe.
Free service, limitless information, endless opportunity for the user... the web seems to defy all the laws of economics. But are we all aware of how much we are trading our privacy for a free web?
Are we empowered, connected and enlightened with the worlds knowledge our finger tips? Is the web really changing us- the way we think, behave, and relate to each other.
'The Virtual Revolution' was made with the help of web users from Teeside to Taiwan.
