Smart Mobs, Collective Action, Media, and Democracy, Part 2

James Fishkin’s Center for Deliberative Democracy and Jim Lehrer’s Newshour brought together 300 American citizens to talk about democracy in the 21st century. By The People, was broadcast in January, 2008. I was invited to address this assembly. I talked about Smart Mobs in relation to the public sphere—the realm of citizen discourse that undergirds democracy.
