Okay, so maybe I have a little bit of a web-crush on Aleks Krotoski. Possibly the most adorable authority on Internet studies ever.
She’s most famous for narrating this documentary series on the Internet in which she poses for an absurd number of the standard, cheesy documentary shots sitting by the ocean with a laptop staring prophetically into the distance. (Still a decent documentary, though.)
She writes a fascinating column for the Guardian’s technology section on understanding the implications of the Internet. Really fascinating stuff, and the articles spark some great comments from readers.
