Full biography of Jamie Bartlett

In researching his book, The Dark Net, Jamie spent a substantial amount of time embedded with these characters, comparing their real-life personas with their online avatars. The Dark Net offers a startling glimpse of human nature under the conditions of freedom and anonymity and shines a light on an enigmatic and ever-changing world.

As Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the think tank Demos, Jamie has researched and written extensively about radical political parties and movements across Europe. He also writes on technology for the Telegraph and for several other publications on how the internet is changing politics and society.

Jamie’s latest book, Radicals Chasing Utopia: Inside the Rogue Movements Trying to Change the World explores the individuals, groups and movements that reject the way we live today. He is also presenting a documentary series on BBC Two in August 2017 on The Secrets of Silicon Valley, a look at the dark reality behind Silicon Valley’s glittering promise for a better world and the possible dark side of AI and automation.

Jamie’s main topics are cybersecurity and privacy online, new political movements, social media research and analysis, and internet cultures.
