Dominic Sandbrook and Tom Holland are joined by tech pioneer Marc Andreessen.
Has the internet been the most important force in modern history?
In part one of this two part series they look at how the internet developed out of military technology, whether early developers knew they were changing the world, and why business initially built a ‘wall of skepticism’ around the possibilities of the World Wide Web.
In Part 2 below, the rise of social media is the central subject, including whether social media is the principal force behind an increase in populist politics.
The ‘Americanisation’ of culture plus Marc’s theory on why software is the closest thing to real life magic also feature.
