Web Science Trust announces Untangling the Web: a new podcast series

December 14, 2020

Evanston, IL – In partnership with the Northwestern University’s Science of Networks in Communities (SONIC) Research Group, the Web Science Trust (WST) is launching a new podcast entitled ”Untangling the Web”.

This new series is hosted by Web Science expert, Northwestern University professor and President-Elect-Select of the International Communications Association (ICA), Noshir Contractor. Noshir interviews thought leaders in the technology and research space to help all of us (including non-experts) navigate some of the most burning issues in Web Science: the study of how the Web is shaping and influencing our society just as we are shaping and influencing the Web. And how the Web is influencing the way we live in the midst of a pandemic for better or for worse. 

 In each episode Noshir invites guests with unique perspectives and policy/research experiences to talk about various facets of Web Science. Guests include some of the founders of Web Science, including Jim Hendler and Dame Wendy Hall. 

Through this, listeners can hear about the challenges — and excitement — that comes with understanding how networks of people and machines interact on a global scale.  And why we must fear that we might be on the brink of the Internet splintering into 4 distinct “splinternets.”

We’ll learn to expect the unexpected Web Science is as human and social as it is technical and data-based. That means the behaviors of people in these networks and the properties of these technologies constantly bring fresh difficulties, questions, and innovations. As government, business and academia all seek to harness the power of these historically ungoverned networks, they must do so without falling victim to unintended consequences.

New episodes will be released on a regular basis and will be available from the WST website, and the podcast homepage; you can also subscribe from major podcast platforms including Spotify, Apple, Google and SoundCloud. Follow our Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for updates. 

The launch of the UTW podcast includes a starter pack of five episodes promoted the week Starting Monday December 14, 2020 through Friday, December 18, 2020. Each day “Untangling the Web” will showcase one of the episodes.
