Bristol-based Rubber Republic has been working on the launch of the BBC Digital Revolution – a crowd-sourced, open-source, collaborative documentary series about the internet.

As part of the launch project, those who post their knowledge and stories around the microsite’s content will have a chance of guiding the major BBC documentary.

Tim Berners-Lee, Chris Anderson, Jimmy Wales, Lee Siegel, Andrew Keen, Aleks Krotoski, Feargal Sharkey, Nicholas Carr, Rory Cellan-Jones and Susan Greenfield are just some of the people involved in the project.

There are four programme topics that people can now contribute to at

1. power on the web

2. the fate of nations

3. the cost of free

4. the web and us

You can follow the progress of the series on Twitter @BBCDigRev.
