“Call someone a ‘cyber utopian’ and it’s likely to be taken as an insult, according to leading media theorist Ethan Zuckerman. But we’ll meet some self-confessed utopians (of the digital variety) who are out of the closet and proud! While they concede cyber utopianism can get a little disconnected from reality, that’s what they like about it. It’s a testing ground for future opportunities they say — a way of encouraging us to think big and make the most of the Internet and new technologies.”

Guests: Danah Boyd, Doc Searls, Ethan Zuckerman, David Weinberger
