Book Description

The Internet; Warts and All asks questions. Why are government digital policies so frequently out of touch and counter-productive? Why is surveillance law ineffective and problematic – and often defeated in court? Do companies like Facebook and Google actually care about freedom of speech? Is ‘fake news’ something that can be ‘dealt with’? Why are neither technology nor laws companies able to get to grips with trolling? Can these issues be talked more effectively; intelligently; and properly in the future? To reply to these questions; The Internet; Warts and All; (PDF) busts a number of illusions and myths about the internet – about the neutrality of algorithms; the impact of surveillance; the permanence of information; the nature of privacy; and more. It shows how ‘fake news’ and trolling arise – and why current moves to deal with them are destined to fail. It suggests a way forward – by accepting the unruly nature of the internet.
