Summer School @ Night: On Networked Solidarity

July 15, 7:30 - 9:00PM

On Networked Solidarity
Organized and moderated by Mushon Zer-Aviv

Discussants: Chris Blow, Ushahidi.com & Meedan.net; Christopher Robbins, WPA 2010 & Ghana Think Tank; and Nadine Wolf, Elecciones Transparentes.com.

As we've seen in Haiti, networked collaboration enabled geeks to affect disaster relief efforts, a job previously exclusive to governments, NGOs and multinational corporations. Will they stick around after the hype has passed? Is the network actually changing the flow and directionality of global attention? Are we seeing the prospects of a new networked solidarity or is it just another trending topic?
