How cellphones, Twitter, Facebook can make history

I love this kind of stuff!

While news from Iran streams to the world, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and TXTs help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics.

In general TED Talks (“ideas worth spreading”) are always inspirational!
