People-Powered: Technology's Role in the People's Revolution

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

The people-powered revolution, fueled by the Internet and technology, are changing everything -- especially the worlds of activism, media and politics. Today, the conversation about the Internet’s role has never been louder or more distributed.

Activism, media and politics have always gone hand in hand. But thanks to the tools we now have and will continue to develop, their speed and influence are limitless. New technologies are emerging every day that strengthen the people-powered movement, giving individuals the tools they need to make their voices heard.

Join us for a discussion about the latest technologies and how they are bolstering the people-powered revolution by empowering people to make a difference.
