Ethan Zuckerman in New Scientist

Worldchanging contributor and board member, Ethan Zuckerman is featured this week in an interview in New Scientist, in which he discusses the future of the web in terms of global access, user demographics, the digital divide, and how connectivity impacts social change.

China has more than 130 million internet users and is starting to play by its own rules. Soon to follow are the Middle East, India, Russia and Brazil. Is the technology that we thought was uniting us really dividing us?
