Organized and moderated by Mushon Zer-Aviv
Discussants: Chris Blow, Ushahidi.com & Meedan.net; Christopher Robbins, WPA 2010 & Ghana Think Tank; and Nadine Wolf, Elecciones Transparentes.com.

Will they stick around after the hype has passed? Is the network actually changing the flow and directionality of global attention? Are we seeing the prospects of a new networked solidarity or is it just another trending topic?
The panel is presented as part of Eyebeam's Summer School, in association with the exhibition Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus, curated and organized by Eyebeam, Not An Alternative, and Upgrade NY! View the full list of related programing, including panels and workshops.
