Can the internet set us free?
Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, goes head to head with Mehdi Hasan at the Oxford Union in front of a live audience.
In this episode of Head to Head, we will explore the far-reaching effects that information technology has on our lives. Mehdi Hasan will talk to Jimmy Wales about the impact of his particular project, the benefits and risks associated with the Internet, and the political implications of governments having more control than ever before on people's privacy.
