Is the Internet the Greatest Power the World Has Ever Seen?

The BBC is exploring this question through SuperPower, a series of TV and radio programs, and online experiments this month, including:

  • SuperPower Nation – Global chat and translation experiment intended to let people who speak different languages talk to each other in real-time.
  • On/Off: Nigeria and South Korea – What happens when the village of Gitana, Nigeria gets an Internet connection, and two families in South Korea go offline for a week?
  • Cracking Walls – How the Internet is improving social, cultural, and political connections in Iraq, and stirring conflict within some communities in the process.
