Strangers on the internet
In 2007, Matt Danzico engages in a massive project to show that strangers on the internet can be trusted -- and finds himself in the middle of nowhere with a broken-down bus and a stranger with a gun.
“There was another stranger epidemic going on, and I thought, god it's happening again. The same thing that happened in the 1980's was happening again. I thought, I will not stand for this.”
Matt Danzico is a staff reporter and video journalist at the BBC News, who primarily focuses on science and web technology in the US. He has previously worked as a video producer at Discovery Channel and reporter at the Tokyo Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper. Matt is also the founder of several web-based social experiments. Most recently, he created a social media-based time perception project called The Time Hack, which forced him to participate in a new and unusual activity each day throughout 2011 in order to explore whether our perception of time is influenced by our actions.
