Down the Deep, Dark Web



Is an interesting topic for a documentary but the subject matter is interesting. Tech Republic have had some articles on the Dark Web over the last few days and it is certainly an eye opener. There is a dark underbelly to the http://www that, supposedly, cannot be accessed through normal channels. Edward Snowdon apparently used it to make his revelations and Journalists and Governments use it to circumvent censorship and spying. Anyway, might be worth a look, if you ever come across it.

I've known about this for a while due to lots of references on social media and TV crime programmes. imo no one uses the dark web for the benefit of humanity, even if they think they have the answers man needs.

I'm not so sure of that, Mary. I believe that reporters have been using it to post and recieve information from regime where censorship is more than just putting a norty book in a brown paper bag. From my research it was originally developed to provide secure information transfer for the American military. So, yes, I can see many good uses for it. Like everything, though, it's the bad apples that ruin the whole pot.
