The rise of the video republic

Paul Johnston, posting at TheConnectedRepublic, has brought to my attention the following video and report on the rise of the video republic.

This looks at how people - particularly young people - are using online video to express their views, share opinions and shape the world views of their generation.

It's a fascinating watch and read and raises the question, how should government be involved in this discussion?

Regardless of what public sector and political leaders decide, this communications channel is growing in strength and will have significant implications on how countries are governed and managed into the future.

    Yes I have. I follow all of Professor Wesch's work on Youtube. Interesting stuff!

    Remember, the web is us! -
