  • The Internet & Uprisings in the Arab World: Are We Already In A Post-Social Media World?, Hosted by Wired

    Event Description:

    Once again, in the short life of the internet and the even shorter lives of
    social media, the medium has been given top billing as people do what
    they¹ve done since the dawn of time ‹ rebel, revolt, fight the power."

    There¹s no doubt that Twitter and Facebook are accelerants to the cause
    whether that cause is to get people on the street to challenge a dictator
    and his armies, or to get Betty White on Saturday Night Live. The question
    is: Has the notion that social media spurs anyone to action already become
    boring?

    Speakers:

    • Moderator: John C Abell, New York Bureau Chief, Wired.com
    • Susannah Vila, Director of Content and Outreach for
      Movements.org
    • Adam Penenberg, AD of the Business and Economic Program at NYU
