That’s the question being asked on tomorrow’s You and Yours on BBC Radio 4. I’ll be on with Andrew Keen (truth has lost its lustre, here’s a previous run in with Emily Bell of the Guardian, and one from me) for a one hour phone programme at the merits and demerits of our increasingly ‘Interneted’ society. What does it let us do now that we couldn’t before? And what are its negative effects: ie, what’s on the dark side? Let us have your thoughts, and I’ll try to feed some of them in. The programme starts just after the 12 o’clock news!
