Social Forums 2.0? Towards Networked Politic: Technology and Knowledge
Hola! Hello! Ciao!
The last World Social Forum (main meeting point of social movements around the globe) took place at Belem do Para (Brazil) end of January 2009. I did participate and co-organized a seminar reflecting on “Social Forums 2.0? Towards Networked Politic: Technology and Knowledge”.
The techno-tools provided by the Social Forums seems to have limited success. The goal of this seminar was to reflect on the strategy of Social Forums regarding technology and knowledge and to analyze and learn from the distinctive organizational form on experiences that do an extensive use of the new technology, such as Wikipedia and the Open/Free Software projects.
I just finalized the seminar report. Please find it if you like: http://www.networked-politics.info/?page_id=205/
