If you were looking for a single individual, who demonstrates that the internet has changed global politics irrevocably, it's Elliot Higgins.

I'm sure he won't mind me describing him as a Frank Zappa loving, video games playing geek from Leicestershire. But that's the most normal thing I can say about Elliot. Because in his middle years, his life seems more like a character in a high budget Hollywood political thriller.

Being a geek, Elliot understands that we live in the new age of information abundance, and he's used that innate understanding of web science to dramatically change politics.

If you don't know him yet, prepare to be astounded by his story.
