How can the Internet unite people, bridge cultures, destroy our minds, bring a new enlightenment and break the world as we know it?

These were just some of the topics addressed by Ben Hammersley when he delivered the British Council Annual Lecture in Northern Ireland on March 23, 2011 (watch the full lecture in this video).

Discussing the 'internet of people', Ben was joined by leaders in the digital world for a post-lecture disussion with the audience at the Derry Playhouse. Watch that discussion at vimeo.com/21477039

A member of the British Council's TN2020 network (britishcouncil.org/tn2020.htm), Ben also took questions on the topic from our Facebook and Twitter followers. See his answers at vimeo.com/21423482
