Belarusian writer, researcher and social commentator Evgeny Morozov is an expert on how technology affects social and political arenas. Earlier this year he published a book called The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom where he looks critically at the ideas and idealism of cyber-utopianism  and how the Internet may do as much harm for democracy as it does good for people in authoritarian states.

In 2009, Morozov gave a talk called The Internet in Society: Empowering or Censoring Citizens where he spoke about these issues.  RSA Animate put the talk to images for this great video.
