I don’t really have much to say on this subject, but I’m really interested in the articles that are starting to emerge about how Facebook and similar social networking sites are being used for political activism in places like the Middle East and Columbia. When you couple these with phenomena in our more immediate experience, such as candidates raising $7 million from small donors in a couple of days over the internet or educators rallying to assemble a list of prior art against an edupatent, I think there are real signs that the activism is beginning to enter a new era with new rules.
