Joseph offers a brief survey of the Deep Web’s varied offering: crowd-sourced hit men, jihadists and esoteric drugs. Yet he invites us to look beyond the pixels, and sensationalist newspaper articles, at some of the people who are shaping this new and expanding space. Within it, lies a passionate, highly ideological community; hackers who wage war on child porn, doctors who try to prevent drug abuse and even book club aficionados. As Joseph puts it, “The Deep Web is not dark, it’s very colourful”.
