Slide set used at the "Digital Media in a Social World" conference in Columbus Ohio, April 2, 2011. My slides are not too meaty, mostly bullet points to keep me on track, but you may find some useful things here.

    6. 6. Blog is the FoundationThe blog is the foundation and center for who youare - either as an individual, or a brand. While Ibelieve the best bloggers in the world areparticipating outside of their blog, on Twitter,FriendFeed, Facebook and everywhere else, to onlyparticipate in those areas leaves a gaping hole. Theworld of lifestreaming and real-time is fun, but itcan be as deep as a soap opera in a world that stilldemands insightful documentaries and newsreporting.http://blog.louisgray.com/2009/06/blogging-is-still-foundation-in-world.html
    7. 7. What is Activist Blogging?Activism: Activism consists of intentionalaction to bring about social, political,economic, or environmental change. Activismcan take a wide range of forms...Some activists try to persuade people tochange their behavior directly, rather thanpersuade governments to change laws. Thecooperative movement seeks to build newinstitutions which conform to cooperativeprinciples, and generally does not lobby orprotest politically.
