Revolution Truth has put together a panel that I am on this afternoon from 12 pm to 2 pm ET called, “WikiLeaks, Whistleblowing & the Global Revolution.” A live audio feed can be listened to by clicking on the player below:
Here is Revolution Truth’s description of the panel:
WikiLeaks has opened up immense possibilities for the future of whistleblowing, for forcing increased transparency in institutions, and for transforming the landscape of journalism. Yet their work and their nature force us to tackle paradoxical and intransigent issues and difficult questions, such as: Who guards the gatekeepers? How do we restore accountability to powerful organizations and institutions? How do governments balance transparency with the need for some measure of secrecy? How do we protect those who bring the public dangerous truths? Most critically, in an arena of increasing information warfare and global unrest, how do we ensure viable, long-lasting change arises out of both Wikileaks’ revelations and global uprisings?
I will be on the panel with Daniel Domscheit-Berg, Birgitta Jonsdottir, Arturo Filasto, Trevor Timm, and Alexa O’Brien. [Bios of each panelist can be read here.]
