Thank you, Ernesto. The film looks very interesting. 

A couple of years ago, one of my students wrote a paper on what libraries can learn from pirate sites and their search capabilities. Of course there is so much more than that. I’m happy to see that the brokenness of the system is being exposed.

Jason Schmitt, 2018) at City, University of London, on Wednesday 17 October 2018 from 17:30. The screening will be introduced by Yours Truly and hopefully followed by discussion, either there or at the pub.
