The social (and multiple) role of the New Media today: The Bottom-up Era

An interesting speech of the British PM Gordon Brown and one of Clay Chirky on the role of the New Media in exposing invisible (or visible) global and local problems and at the same time harassing dictators, quasi-dictators, oppressors, terrorists, fanatics etc. Also a worthy of note plea of Gordon Brown for new institutions dealing with global problems. Worth spending 15 minutes to see.
