"From a cutting-edge cultural commentator and documentary filmmaker, this work is a bold and brilliant challenge to cherished notions of the Internet as the great democratizing force of our age. The Internet has been hailed as a place where all can be heard and everyone can participate equally. But how true is this claim? In this seminal dismantling of techno-utopian visions, the author argues that for all that we 'tweet' and 'like' and 'share,' the Internet in fact reflects and amplifies real-world inequities at least as much as it ameliorates them.
