The Dark Net isn't what you think. It's actually key to our privacy | Alex Winter | TEDxMidAtlantic

There is a hidden Internet, completely separate from the surface Web. Documentary filmmaker Alex Winter spent several years immersed in this fascinating world and talks about how the battle for your right to privacy is being waged in this dark corner of the Internet. You may have heard the “Dark Net” is a scary underworld filled with crime, but Alex’s findings will surprise you.

Alex Winter entered show business as a child actor on Broadway and came to prominence in the wildly popular BILL AND TED franchise. Winter’s latest, award-winning documentary DEEP WEB, recently had a critically acclaimed world premiere at SXSW and a broadcast premiere in the U.S. on the Epix network, to be followed by a worldwide release on all platforms in September 2015.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  6. James West says:

    If you use a protected site, you are automatically considered to be hiding something and automatically become a suspect. You are better off just to let the bastards see or hear what you have to say and conduct any communications that you think might be a problem in a different way.

    Isaiah 25 6 And Jehovah of armies will

    certainly make for all the peoples,

    n in this mountain, a banquet

    of well-oiled dishes, a banquet

    of wine kept on the dregs, of

    well-oiled dishes filled with marrow,

    of wine kept on the dregs,

    filtered. 7 And in this mountain

    he will certainly swallow up

    the face of the envelopment that

    is enveloping over all the peoples,

    and the woven work that is

    interwoven upon all the nations.

    8 He will actually swallow up death forever…"
