Online Campaigns: The Good and Bad

Earlier this month I was interviewed by Jamillah Knowles, an award-winning podcast producer with Global Voices, for a podcast episode called 'The Good and Bad of Online Campaigns'. Global Voices "seeks to aggregate, curate, and amplify the global conversation online - shining light on places and people other media often ignore".

Among the people also interviewed were Rosebell Kagumire, a journalist and blogger from Uganda, living now in Kampala, as well as ‘Femi Adesina, a British-born Nigerian web and creative technologist, both of whom commented from slightly different perspectives the whole Kony2012 discussion.

The 35 minute podcast attached here is worth listening to for its unique view on how the social web can amplify a cause or campaign.
