WEDS: @BBCRadio4 ‏ Aleks in Wonderland: The Story of the Internet – Episode 1 @aleksk

BBC On Wednesday August 16 2017 at 08:00 UTC (repeated at 20:30 UTC) BBC Radio 4 will broadcast the first of a 4 part-series Aleks in Wonderland: The Story of the Internet.

As the BBC puts it:

In this series Aleks Krotoski unravels the complexity of the internet, meeting the people who really invented it, looking behind the myths and cultural constructs to explain what it actually is and how it came to exist outside of conventional regulation.
We’ll ask whether the nature of the net itself really is cause for concern – and if so what can be done to reign in the negatives of the internet without restricting the positives?

This first episode is entitled ‘The International League of Geeky Gentlemen“.
