Our Comment

"Jamie’s main topics are new political movements, social media research and analysis, internet cultures and security and privacy online. Focusing on his latest research for "The Dark Net", his talks offer a startling glimpse of human nature under the conditions of freedom and anonymity, and shines a light on an enigmatic and ever-changing world."
