Keynote Speaker - Jamie Bartlett
Bartlett is the author of The Dark Net, an examination of the
hidden corners of the internet, it’s strange subcultures, and the
protagonists that inhabit it – from trolls, Bitcoin miners,
political extremists and members of the hacktivist group
Anonymous, to pornographers, drug dealers, computer scientists
and neo-Nazis. In researching his book, Jamie spent a substantial
amount of time embedded with these characters, comparing their
real life personas with their online avatars. The Dark Net offers
a startling glimpse of human nature under the conditions of
freedom and anonymity, and shines a light on an enigmatic and
ever-changing world. As Head of the Violence and Extremism
Programme and the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the
think-tank Demos, Jamie has researched and written extensively
about radical political parties and movements across Europe. He
also writes on technology for the Telegraph and for several other
publications on how the internet is changing politics and
society. Jamie’s main topics are cyber security and privacy
online, new political movements, social media research and
analysis, and internet cultures.
