The Virtual Revolution covered by the BBC

The Virtual Revolution refers to the fact that 20-25% of the word’s population is using the web by now, while other 80% are yet either not connected to broadband connections or are just not using it, as Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the web, states. In Afrika for example, people are now getting connected to broadband internet in a wide variety of areas. This means that the digital revolution that has shaped our world as we know it now, will happen in these areas too.

The BBC has started a series called “The Virtual Revolution – How 20 years of the web has reshaped our lives“. The following video represents a great intro to this series:
