The World Wide Web is an utterly unprecedented repository of information - and mistakes. Noah Richler talks to mathematicians, philosophers, advertisers, web gurus, executives and pioneers. He investigates what the unrivalled data of the internet can tell us about how stories spread and if truth, or falsehoods, win out in the end.
