YouTube – Adam Curtis Interview – Das Internets (P1/2).

The first Adam Curtis video I watched online was "All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace" which bemoaned our use of the internet. It attempts to show the downside of cybernetics, distributed systems, democracy, the internet, and the so called "California Ideal".

In this audio clip from some interview that I found on the internet purports to be him talking about new possibilities made possible by those systems as the apply to documentary creation, presentation, and delivery.
