This baby boomer (me) is amazed on a daily basis. The speed with which information is transmitted internationally blows my mind.
While I was growing up, it was the newspaper – backed up by the nightly news from NBC. Today it’s Twitter, Facebook, RSS feeds – immediate information flying through the digital landscape to land on my desktop.
Initially, I really noticed the effect during the last presidential campaign and the incredibly effective way Obama’s team put the internet to work.
The recent events in Egypt, Bahrain, and Japan have demonstrated the power of that people hold in their hands. The power to tell the truth – to share their stories – to help.
The world is watching – and caring.
Power to the people (… and the animals!)
