Podcast: Introduction And Amateur Activism/Journalism

With so many issues and causes around I suppose it makes sense to gain understanding of the biggest picture in terms of how political will is exercised, and how power structure in global institutions is aligned with economic incentives. It makes little sense Persuing a cause without this perspective, and with social media its possible to broaden activism from the odd protest of hairy hippies and mask wearing maverick hackers to the common Joe who weilds only a keyboard and a bit of knowledge.

The basic method involves asking do we already have the solutions (dwahts)? Finding areas where social, technological or political solutions exist, and asking who stands to gain where the political will is not there to roll them out.
