Why is the internet such a horrible place, and what can we do about it?

I guess we once thought of the internet as having some sort of liberating potential, but today it’s pretty clear that, although we can’t live without it, it’s a pretty horrible place (especially if you’re not a straight white guy). When was the last time you saw a woman being harassed by an egg-man on Twitter, and how can we make sure it stops happening?

Asked by:

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.

Ask your questions and vote on others, then join us on 27 – 28 November for a feast of frequently unanswered questions – as we present your most controversial, revealing, funny and insightful ideas to a 25-strong Brains Trust of the world’s most inquisitive thinkers.

So pose your burning questions. We’ll build this festival on your curiosity, so brace yourself – and wonder hard.
