This is a hugely important story that touches on many of the topics we've covered on Rebel Wisdom, the problems of Sensemaking, the manipulation of the information landscape by powerful actors, and the value of decentralised collective intelligence as an alternative sensemaking force.
In this film, we hear from some of the main players, and try to tell the story so far. This is a hugely complex story, which we have been researching for several months.
