I'm facilitating a roundtable today at the SCRA Southeastern Region Eco Conference at USC in Columbia, South Carolina on the topic of Web 2.0 and Social Change. I'm starting off with 3 provocative propositions to get discussion going:
- Communities, community betterment, social movements, and social change are the products of the human talent for accomplishing complex tasks together.
- Web 2.0 enables us to learn, argue, deliberate, transact, and organize on scales and at paces that were never before possible.
- A particular kind of literacy is necessary for the potential power of communication networks to manifest
Below are some of the resources I mentioned in the roundtable. I'll ask participants to post some reactions in the comment section.
