Do you have any experience with the Dark Web?  If so what was that like?

Thanks.  You can actually talk to her on Facebook.
Those computers were so huge and clunky.  I've heard of Tor, but I've never used it.  
If the hidden web (dark web & deep web) was 500x the size of the normal web a decade ago, imagine how big it is now.  
The narrator sounded like he was Dutch or German.  This was a really informative clip.

You need to be careful on the Dark Web, people will be watching you at all times.

Yep, and there are all kinds of people who are more than happy to take over your computer or try and scam you in any way they can up to and including identity theft. From what I understand, unless you are well versed in VPNs or other good means of hiding your IP address or identity, it's not worth the risk just to poke around.

I've heard of it but have no idea how to access it or what truly goes on there. I don't know much about computers besides the usual stuff that the average person needs to know in order to use one regularly. So trying to go there wouldn't be the best idea.

I'm naturally very curious, so I've dug all around the dark web via Tor.  There are various Onion links that lead you to nefarious and not so nefarious sites.  A lot of the dark web is libertatian philosophizing and anti-BigGov raving.  There's also plenty of places offering drugs. fake i.d., hitmen, and, of course, niche porn.  

The Tor browser was reportedly developed by the US military initially.  It's easy to download.

I thought it would be cool to write a novel about the dark web, but I googled and someone already did that.  There are plenty of nonfiction books and youtube clips about the subject.

I know one of the Jack Reacher novels involves the dark web. A company advertises painless assisted suicide, and when you go there, you wind up in a snuff porn video.

That's really the punchline.  There's not much on the dark web that probably isn't available through one of the many classified ad sites on the regular web.  It is perhaps more overt on the dark web.

To be honest, most of the so- called Dark Web is singularly unexciting and rather dull.....
