Just recently the internet celebrated its 30th Birthday; a phenomenon that has revolutionised the way in which we share and consume information. No longer are we solely dependent on the voices of mainstream tabloids and broadsheets; we’re now in control of where we consume our information from, whether that be from forums, video sharing sites, blogs or websites. With this growing phenomena of information sharing, we ourselves are capable of airing our perspectives and opinions to a mass audience in a matter of seconds; this now creating space for all sorts of voices to perpetuate their agendas. Ahead of the return of Scotsman’s Fringe First Award 2017 ‘The Believers Are But Brothers’, playwright Javaad Alipoor discusses the show’s addressing of this phenomena. An online world we once celebrated the beginnings of, now a Wild West of opinions ranging from the tame to the absolute inflammatory.
