The Internet Age: an era of unprecedented freedom in both communication and culture.
However each major new medium, from telephone to satellite television, has crested a wave of similar idealistic optimism, before succumbing to the inevitable undertow of industrial consolidation. Every once free and open technology has, in time, become centralised and closed; a huge corporate power taking control of the ‘master switch.’
Today, as a similar struggle looms over the internet, increasingly the pipeline of all other media, the stakes have never been higher.

5by5 - The Critical Path #19: The hiring and firing of milkshakes and candy bars
I dokumentären ”Bondeoffret” följer vi med Ulrika Hjalmarson Neideman till Island för att följa i Bobby Fischers sista fotspår. Vi möter den person som kanske stod schackgeniet närmast, hans isländske livvakt Sami Pålsson. Han stod vid Fischers sida under de två mest omtumlande skeendena i livet och fick uppleva ett stycke världshistoria. Det är en berättelse om det missförstådda geniet som gjorde sig ovän med en hel värld, som gång på gång hamnade mitt i världspolitikens hetta. I nödens stund tvingades han återvända till platsen för sitt livs största triumf, för att sedan sluta sitt liv i exil. Men det är också en historia om en ojämlik vänskap som sträcker sig över 35 år. Om kungen och bonden och hur de kom att spela en så avgörande roll i varandras liv.
Acclaimed journalist, author and biographer James Gleick visits the RSA to tell the story of how information became the modern era’s defining quality - the blood, the fuel, the vital principle of our world.

Providing portraits of key figures including Charles Babbage, Ada Byron, Alan Turing and Claude Shannon, Gleick traces the inexorable development of our modern understanding of information to our present moment, when so often we feel we are drowning in a deluge of signs and signals, news and images, blogs and tweets.
