It is fair to say that I have a bit of a bee in my bonnet concerning the use of modern media (sound, video, streaming technologies and the web).
I think all political and related meetings should be recorded for sound at the very least, preferably a video, and both mediums made freely available across the web.
That way discussions held in one place can have an audience of 10,000s+, not merely 30-60 people sitting in a room nodding their heads in approval.
If you believe in an idea or concept strongly then it should be put across to as many people as possible and an effort made to engage them in the process of debating it.
The exchange of views should not be hidden away from public debate, nor confined to a geophysical location but made global, and without the constraint of time or physicality.
So imagine, I was please to see the WPI make good use of YouTube in the form of a daily briefing. Splendid idea.
Hearing Iranians discussing the ever changing situation in Iran is both helpful and instructive. You can disagree with their analysis, but at least they are trying to put it over in a digestible, coherent fashion and connect to people.
“Hands Off the People of Iran is pleased to have launched its first blog that will keep track of the ongoing struggles in Iran. At this time we are receiving videos, pictures and news almost by the minute.”
