Episode 2 of Virtual Revolution‘s radio adaptation for the World Service airs today at 10:05am GMT as part of the BBC’s World Service Super Power season. This programme outlines the effect of the World Wide Web on global politics, ricochets around the Twitterverse, examines cyberbalkaniszation, prods the new digital propaganda, discusses confirmation biases and both grassroots and organised extremism and introduces the foundations of a new theatre of war.

Big stuff.

And thank heaven’s to Betsy, the programme is available to experience globally.
