Social Media Is The Oxygen Of This Revolution #SyriaKelowna

As a Social Media consultant I often write about the How, What, Why and tips and tricks to make your experience more rewarding. As much as I love doing that Social Media is much more than that – it represents a fundamental shift in our lives – a shift that can be compared to the impact of the printing press or the industrial revolution.

With the help of many friends I co-organized an event yesterday that brought the struggle of the Syrian people into our small city of Kelowna, BC

#SMPanel Recording of the Panel Event on December 16th 2011

On December 16th 2011 I invited 5 Social Media users to talk about the impact of Social Media on Democracy – The video clips below are a documentation of this very interesting evening and I invite you to browse them or watch them in sequence. The idea for the event was in context with the recent municipal election but also with a CBC Media Panel
