Blogging, online video and rapid-fire text messaging are new media technologies that have become widely used and adapted in the last few years. Savvy users have applied these technologies in unexpected ways to achieve political goals. Governments are struggling to respond — some with repression, some with reforms.
On January 22, at 9 a.m. EST (16:00 in Romania), join Patrick Butler for a discussion of how technology is allowing new voices to create and become part of a global discussion.
Butler is vice president for programs at the International Center for Journalists, a Washington-based nonprofit organization that, according to its mission statement, “promotes quality journalism worldwide in the belief that independent, vigorous media are crucial in improving the human condition.”
