Evgeny Morozov on Al Jazeera with a little bit of me

Below is an recent Al Jazeera program with Evgeny Morozov discussing social media and activism and some of the ideas behind his book The Net Delusion, subtitled ‘The dark side of Internet freedom’. Well worth a read, especially for people who have drunk the techno-utopian Kool Aid.

I am on the second part of the program, looking a little scary – the interview was done over Skype just after 5am Melbourne time – I was in that lovely city for the Melbourne Writers Festival. A little too early in the morning for love television – I realize I did not properly answer some of the questions that were put to me.
