The 7 Activist Uses of Digital Tech: the Case of Popular Resistance in Egypt

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

Presented by: Mary Joyce
Founder, Meta-Activism Project

When thinking about the use of digital technology and social media in resistance we are often overwhelmed by anecdote. Look at a dozen cases and you will see three dozen examples of how activists are using digital technology in their work. This endless variety can be confusing not only to observers, but to activists themselves. There are few guidelines for what tech can and cannot do or strategic frameworks to use in planning whether and how to use digital technology in a campaign. In this webinar Mary Joyce, Founder of the Meta-Activism Project, will present a framework that divides digital technology into seven activist functions: documenting, co-creating, mobilizing, broadcasting, synthesizing, protecting and transferring resources. She will use the recent case of the Egyptian Revolution to explore these functions.
