UPDATE: see this talk on YouTube (tx to Lloyd Davis.) a post of the rough notes from my 3 minute 'provocation' at today's NESTA Uploading Innovation Event.
SOCIAL MEDIA FOR CAMPAIGNING
not amnesty's official view
architecture of participation for campaigning amnesty, greenpeace, witness
disruptive innovations, bypassing and displacing
move-on, avaaz, genocide intervention network
post-deferential era people will do it anyway
youtube and human rights; wael abbas; first ever prosecutions of egyptian police for torture
ice cream flash mobs of belarus
THE DARK SIDE: SURVEILLANCE AND CONFORMITY
chance social media will lead to conformity privacy invasion
google & yahoo - everything about us and our relationships
you know social media is making a social difference when people start getting arrested for it
blogger kareem amer,
critical comments, protected freedom under int'l law
CREATIVITY VERSUS COPYRIGHT
Internet Governance Forum - titanic clash, aggressive IPR & copyright versus Freedom of Expression
make a big difference to what innovation we can do with social media
Joichi Ito - remixing is a new form of freedom of expression
SOCIAL MEDIA FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, HUMAN RIGHTS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA
Q. how do we shape policy to optimise social media innovation?
best hope for human rights activism in C21st
not just social media for human rights, but human rights for social media
how to preserve that quality that Jonathan Zittrain calls 'generativity'
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
policy & law: we need more than creative commons code:
psiphon: anonymity - also spread via social networks culture:
providing a safe space for people to network and campaign c.f. hispanic kids in LA using myspace to organize against anti-immigrant legislation
maybe org not doing the campaign, but providing campaigning context provide a safe space for collaborative innovation and say to people: 'be part of the change you want to see'
