DOWN THE DEEP, DARK WEB reverses everything you thought you knew about the internet and the dangers of the digital world. Our guide is Yuval Orr, a young journalist born in 1984 and well-aware of the gradual encroachment of Big Brother, but like many of his generation, too busy updating his Facebook status to pay it much attention. Assigned with writing an article about the Darknet, he dives headfirst down the rabbit hole. On a journey that takes us through Tel Aviv, Prague and Berlin, Yuval meets tech experts, cybercrime watchmen, and a group of self-appointed underground freedom fighters.
This latter group – an assembly of hackers, crypto-anarchists and libertarians – stand on the frontier of an unseen battle for privacy, shielded by the anonymity of the Darknet. In contrast to the nefarious activities for which the Darknet is know, these activists are united across borders to defend the universal human rights which are quickly falling by the wayside in our privacy-free online age. Here, in the depths of the Darknet, we find the people lighting the way to the freedoms of tomorrow.
