  • People-Powered: Technology and the Revolution

    by David All and Pete Snyder

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

    Activism, media and policy always have worked together. But thanks to the tools we now have and will continue to develop, their speed and influence are limitless. New technologies that strengthen the people-powered movement are emerging every day, giving individuals the tools they need to be heard.

    Join us for a discussion about the latest technologies and how they are bolstering this revolution by empowering people to shape activism, media and policy.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Tuesday 13th March

    In Room 8A, Austin Convention Center
