Africa, the birth place of mankind. But it's not the path that brings me here, it's the future.Africa has just been plugged to the broad band. And it's the world wide web grows and spread across the continent. It's transforming all the detaches. The small town at the xxx in xxx is the latest to be hooked to the globe. I am travelling with xxx, the man who invented the web. It's 20 years since he made the break through. And now it is dividing between the digital house and have not been shrinking fast.
I think the web is about collecting humanity and now 20 or 25 percent people of the world are using it. So the question is what about the other 80 percent.
His community house may not look much but it is the frontier of the virtual revolution.
It was like getting back when people first get to the web. We wouldn't in the early days, if you like it, the xxx as we have to get to further reaches of the world--Africa.
But what we have created the last 20 years. What does it mean? Is our wired web a blessing or a curse?
If the web gets roots in Africa as it has done in elsewhere. It's gonna be the next continent get reshaped by the digital revolution. But how has the web has affected since 20 years it has been created? And what does that mean for the people here. And the majority of people who have not connected yet.
The web is the defining technological revolution of our lifetimes. Almost 2 million of us are now online. And in 10 years as I been studying the web and writting it as a journalist, I've been seeing it taking the world and shaking it apart. The web has created unimaginable wealth. Getting 4 millions to work for nothing. It challenged authority and allow to spy and sensor as never before. And it's been criticizing for generating a generation of webadicts. It bings new round of knowledge. In this series I'll be meeting all the pioneers and keyplayers, everybody from google to facebook twiter to amazon. The people who help to bring this unstopable leveling power culture and has such an impact on our daily lives.
