  • The insider – outsider divide <br /> What am I here? An insider because I am on this panel? Or an outsider because I am not working for an institution? And does that change when we leave our workplaces? <br />
  • “Saw your blog. Found it cheap and self serving” <br /> https://twitter.com/SpiegelPeter/status/158802093883396096 <br /> Peter Spiegel – bureau chief of the Financial Times <br /> The first – and last – blogger to ever go on one. <br /> http://www.jonworth.eu/so-that-was-a-presidency-press-trip-im-feeling-rather-empty/ <br />
  • Best ever case: a blogger (me) and a journalist (Ariane Sherine) changed the face of atheist debate. Explain the story. <br />
  • But the British Humanist Association assumed they would get a boost in membership. They didn’t. <br />
  • Cases like the primary to select Hollande, and GreenPrimary – where does this leave insider / outsider in political parties too? <br /> Also mention the Nikki Brooks case in Labour here – social media gives the power to see in, but not to be. <br />
  • Are you representing your organisation in social media? You as an employee of the organisation? You personally? You, privately or annonymously? Draw out these points here. <br />
  • I took the train to get to Brussels. Night train København – Köln, and ICE from Köln to Brussels <br />
  • If I’d booked it: €138.70 <br />
  • EESC had to use a travel agency. I was not allowed to book it. They did it wrong, then finally when they did it right, the cost was huge. How do we change that mentality? <br />
  • It goes right to the top. When Merkel said this, has she ever actually needed to rely on the internet to organise her everyday life? <br /> Experience with young politicians in the UK – compulsively Googling themselves, but not seeing the network potential. <br /> Every day, every human can do more and more and find out more and more, without the intervention of another human. <br />
  • This is pretty obvious for people in this audience. <br /> I’m no more senior than any of the people here, and you are not more senior than me. We build a network among us here today, we then go away and do our own thing. <br /> But that’s not how the political world works. <br />
  • Join. Participate in the local committee. Region. National. Spend years going through the system. It’s your years of service, not your ability. <br />
  • And so you apply this to politics? The Pirates! <br />
  • “pre-figurative action” <br /> “the attempt to practice the kind of democracy that the participants imagine” – essentially the organisation, the network, is the end in itself <br /> See: Mary Kaldor http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/europpblog/2012/10/20/subterranean-politics-europe/ <br />
  • What do Grillo and Farage have in common? <br /> They have realised that full party hierarchy is a headache, a burden, and have tried to reduce it. Both are at least flatter hierarchy movements than traditional parties. <br /> But what happens as the parties grow, are subjected to more scrutiny? Collapse, or professionalise, or Pirate-style network? Look at what is happening to Grillo locally, and the problems UKIP has with racism among its activists. <br />
  • So what about our friend in Italy, Beppe Grillo? <br /> Many of you are probably groaning just by seeing him <br />
  • The UK has its own Grillo – Nigel Farage <br />
  • The pressure group networked model <br />
  • Neo-nico-tinoids - bees <br /> 7 petitions! In German alone! <br /> And a temporary neonicotinoids ban <br />
  • Hugh’s Fish Fight <br />
  • European Citizens’ Initiative – first to get 1 million <br /> http://www.right2water.eu/ “Water is a human right” <br />
  • But what if you’re on the receiving end? Conversation with Marietje Schaake <br />
  • This week, I’ve received thousands of e-mails about shark finning, she said to me. What am I supposed to do with those? I do not deal with anything to do with animal rights. And how do I know these people? <br />
  • But for climate change <br />
  • And for poverty in Greece, we have no meaningful action. <br /> Specific – Objectives should specify what they want to achieve. <br /> Measurable – You should be able to measure whether you are meeting the objectives or not. <br /> Achievable - Are the objectives you set, achievable and attainable? <br /> Realistic – Can you realistically achieve the objectives with the resources you have? <br /> Time – When do you want to achieve the set objectives? <br />
  • Home Affairs <br />
  • “A solitary decider” http://www.buzzfeed.com/rosiegray/how-carne-ross-created-a-new-kind-of-diplomacy <br />
  • Story 1: Credible commitment (and the lack of it) <br /> Silvio Berlusconi. Like him or loathe him, he polarises <br /> He pitched up to a European Council summit in December 2010 <br /> Time for a social media bonanza thought the press service of the Council… <br />
  • But as a citizen this is what you would get if you were anywhere near the building! <br />
  • So what do a bunch of nerds do? <br /> They game the system, forcing the experiment to be turned off <br />
  • It’s based on the famous story of change.gov in the UK – being too open <br /> This poses problems and opportunities for politics – what is the value of 1000 e-mails, in comparison to the value of 1000 letters <br />
