A Generation of Interdweebs


The Consequences of Internet Dependency

How is technology changing the world? While there a million possible answers, we focused on four narratives that tell the stories of some of the most controversial and troubling aspects of the internet. Nearly a third of the entire population have  become internet users in some shape or form. This global network is responsible for the movement of billions of dollars in goods, information, and money.

In this section of our site you will find investigations grappling with the complexities of the four narratives:

Technology and the internet have become a gigantic part of day to day human life. This drastic change in habit and development between this generation and the last is rarely covered in mainstream news because large monopolies have hidden interest in preventing the public from knowing what the internet is doing to our society.
