Creating Technology for Social Change

Tweets and the streets with Paolo Gerbaudo

Last Wednesday we had Pablo Gerbaudo presenting his book Tweets and the streets: Social Media and Contemporary Activism at the Center for Civic Media. It was a great opportunity to share ideas, and research, about the use of social networking sites in social mobilizations in the: Arab Spring (in Egypt), Indignados (Spain), Occupy (USA).
