I was going to tweet but they postponed planned maintenance to aid the Iranian protestors [http://is.gd/13MDT]
I’m not sure if I know enough about Mousavi’s positions about lots of issues that are important to me.
I am sure that I do not like oppression.
I am sure that I like the way that the Internet and what we call social media is a democratizing force that allows humans to exchange messages and interact one to many in a way that has never been possible before.
If we don’t act to use these forces as a catalyst for change we could lose a unique opportunity to create a global community where the values of helping one another, which are common amongst people can slip away from us.
As an Internet / Social Media professional I’m sitting here thinking about holding an impromptu event in my office on Friday morning to see how fellow UK professionals in this area can get together and help our friends in Iran looking for a bit more freedom. We can stream it over the internet etc..
I’m going post a tweet this blog entry when twitter goes back up. If I get DM’s comments etc before midday on Thursday 17th June the HC team will organize it.
