Apple 8 – Social Media and Social Action – 13th October

Connected to the previous post about Gladwell’s article on ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted,’ I’m really excited about the next Apple event, which is coming up on 13th October. Dr Luke Bretherton will be leading a discussion on social media and social action, asking whether Facebook and Twitter have anything to add to community organising and political activism, or if the 1.4 million people who’ve joined the ‘Save Darfur’ group are wasting their time, and fooling themselves.

Details here. Good beer and food. You should be there!
