For the last 18 months I've been working on a book project aimed at the surprising level of public ignorance about the Internet and its implications. What is the minimal set of concepts that laymen -- and women -- would need to grasp in order to have a rounded appreciation of the Internet phenomenon? Drawing on the work of George Miller, I've come up with his 'magical number' of ideas, which I will outline in my presentation. I'll be fascinated to know what an informed audience makes of them.

Presenter: Professor John Naughton (MCT)

Location: Jennie Lee Building Main Ambient Lab Ground Floor
