  • I’m speaking at Frontline Club today….

    Social media has opened up new ways for people to communicate, organise and campaign.

    But in what ways are people using social media for political ends? Looking at examples from around the world we will be examining the ways in which new tools are being used and the ways they have been used to challenge authority.

    What can we learn about both the potential of web and phone technology and what are their limitations. Can online buzz be translated into tangible effects? Or has as been claimed with the case of the Green protests in Iran, has the role played by social media been hyped by an over-excited mainstream media?

    …that is the blurb.

    I’ll be part of the panel today along with various journalists from around the world.
