How the internet will turn the world upside down

Talk about demonstrating the scary power of the internet. In this near-future science fiction story, blogger Tom Scott shares a scenario that could very easily become a reality.  

It centres around how one short video clip uploaded onto the web spreads across the world like wildfire. It results in a flash mob, which turns into a riot and then ultimately, several deaths.

Now, keep in mind this is not a real story. But the incidences Scott mentions in his story have all occurred – just not at the same time.

At least not yet.
