We’re launching a debate on the future of cultural relations in an interconnected world. The rise and spread of the Internet and the world wide web are first and foremost a cultural phenomenon. In a new Counterpoint publication entitled Cloud Culture, Charles Leadbeater outlines the promises and challenges associated with cloud computing and its impact on social and cultural identities across the world.
