Today I listened to Episode 2. It’s funny how current this whole program sounds, everything seeming perfectly natural as “the recession” and it’s effects were mentioned.

It was harder to create an infographic for this one than the first one. It was less about concrete concepts on which data can be dug up, and more about thinking philosophically about good and bad, which is certainly hard to quantify.
While doing the research I found this interesting summary of cybercrime cases (at justice.gov). The summaries are simple and eloquent and tell very interesting little stories.
