Twittering the Revolution

Once again, I'm stealing things from Andrew Sullivan.  Is there a Pulitzer Prize for Blogging?

It's long but worth it. Especially when you realize that he's speaking before the events in Iran.

That was so good! Thanks for posting it.

As a student of rhetoric, it is good to see the ideas of audience and speakers getting mainstreamed into communications/information discussions.

Dr. Beth Kolko, a scholar in Technical Communication at the University of Washington, has been studying this for a number of years in third world countries with millions of dollars in grant money. Her body of work is worth a looksee if this is interesting to you, too.

Andrew Sullivan, Nico Pitney of the Huffington Post, and people from inside Twitter have been the absolute best at disseminating and analyzing information about what is going on in Iran. It certainly has not been the MSM.
