Africa, the birthplace of mankind. But it’s not the past that brings me here, it’s the future. Africa has just been plugged into broadband. And as the worldwide web grows and spreads across the continent, it’s transforming all that it touches.

The small town of Abiriw in Ghana is just one of the latest to be hooked up to the globe. I’m traveling with Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the web. It’s 20 years since he made his breakthrough. And now the divide between the “digital-haves” and “have-nots” is shrinking fast.

“I think the web is about connecting humanity. Now that we get the point that 20, 25% of the world are using it, then suddenly the question is what about the other 80%?”

This community center may not look like much, but it’s the new frontier of this virtual revolution.

“It was a little bit like going back in time to when people first came across the web. We wouldn’t, in the early days have been anything like, it’s presumptuous, as we say how can we make sure this gets to the furthest reaches of rural Africa.”

But what exactly is it that we’ve created over the last 20 years. What does it mean? Is our wired digital world a blessing or a curse?

If the web does take root in Africa as it has done in elsewhere, then this will be the next continent to be reshaped by the digital revolution. But how has the web affected us in the 20 years since it was created. And what does that mean for the future of the people here and the majority of the world who aren’t yet connected.

The web is the defining technological revolution of our lifetimes. Almost two billion of us are now online. And in the ten years that I’ve been studying the web and writing about it as a journalist, I’ve seen it take our world and shake it apart. The web has created unimaginable wealth, yet encouraged millions to work for nothing. It’s challenged authority, yet allowed regimes to spy and censor as never before. And it’s been blamed for creating a generation of web addicts, yet opened up new realms of knowledge. In this series, I will be meeting all the pioneers and key players, everybody from Google to Facebook, Twitter to Amazon, the people who’ve helped bring about this seemingly unstoppable leveling of power, culture and values. That’s having such an impact on all of our daily lives.

Africa,the birthplace of mankind. But it’s not the past that bring me here, it’s the future. Africa has just been plugged in the broad thing, and as worldwide web grows and spreads across the continent, it’s transforming all that it touches.

The small town of ** in *is just one of the latest to be hooked up to the globe. I am traveling with Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the web. It’s 20 years since he’s made the break though, and now the divide between the digital-haves and have-not is shrinking fast.
“I think the web is about connecting humanity, now we got to the point is 20,25% of the world are using it, suddenly the question is what about the other 80%?”
The community center may not look like much, but it’s the new frontier of this virtual revolution.

“It was a little bit like going back time when people first came across the web, we wouldn’t in the early days it would be anything like, it’s presumptutous, as how could we make sure it get to the furthest reaches of Africa.”
But what exactly is it that we have created in the last 20 years? What does it mean? Is our wired digital world a blessing or a curse?

If the web does take root in Africa as it has done elsewhere, then it will be the next continent to be reshaped by the digital revolution, But how has the web affected us in the 20 years since it created? And what does that mean for the future of the people here and majority of world who were not yet connected?

The web is defining technological revolution of our life time, almost 2 billion of us are now online. And in the 10 year as I have been studying the web and writing about it as a journalist, I have seeing it take the world and shake it apart. The web has created unimaginable wealth, yet encouraged millions to work for nothing. It challenged authority to get allow regimes to spy and censor as never before. And it has been blamed for creating a generations of web addicts. It opens up new * of knowledge.
In this series, I’ll be meeting all the pioneers and key-player, everybody from google to facebook, twiter and Amazon, the people who help bring about this seemingly unstoppable leveling power, culture and values, and having such impact on all of our daily lives.
