Will the web help to spread democracy, extend freedom and alleviate inequality as its advocates believe? Or does it threaten to spin the world more out of control as the authority of professional knowledge is undermined?
Charles Leadbeater's new book We Think argues the web could be a powerful force for good by promoting new forms of collaborative, mass creativity, especially in the developing world. Leadbeater will explore the implications for a generation that will grow up believing in the power of We Think.
Charles Leadbeater is one of the world's leading authorities on innovation and creativity in organisations. He has advised companies, cities and governments around the world on innovation strategy
