Some starting points…

Charlie Leadbetter’s pamphlet on Cloud Culture, published by the British Council this year. This is a great primer on what the cloud means in a general sense, and what it implies for culture on a global basis. Good for both w22 and w23 sessions.

Aleks Krotoski’s Virtual Revolution series on BBC2 has been great – and very relevant for this strand of the module (check YouTube for informal uploads). The wealth of material on the supporting site adds substantially to the depth – especially the transcripts of the uncut interviews with all sorts of web luminaries. It’s well worth watching. The TV version has been edited for radio on the World Service. Unlike the TV versions, there’s no time limit on accessing the podcasts (it’s part of the Monday Documentaries series: first episode is here on iTunes).
