Jamie Bartlett

My chief interest is the relationship between technology, politics and society - and my aim is to make writing on tech accessible to a general public. I find too many books on the subject are dry, technical and lack human characters. I especially like to find subcultures - the fringe groups and ideas most people dismiss as crazy - because they are very often useful guides to the future. This is the approach I took in my first book 'The Dark Net', which looked at hidden internet subcultures, based on months immersed in these groups. I write frequently on these questions for several outlets, and do occasional television work - including a two part BBC 2 series about disruption, called 'The Secrets of Silicon Valley'. You can find most of my recent stuff via my Twitter handle, @jamiejbartlett - and do get in touch with me there, as I always try to respond!
