So, over the last years, during the first week in April, I've attended the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder, CO. I call it my intellectual Spring Break. I appear on several panels talking politics, media, pop culture, comic books and various other matters of a high and low nature! This year one of them was on the "Uses of Twitter"! As luck would have it, the C-SPAN cameras were there to cover it.
It aired a few times last week and is available online right here, http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/311967-1
. My initial comments click in around 6 minutes and 15 seconds, but I recommend the whole segment. My learned co-panelists are journalist Shane Bauer who spent several months imprisoned in Iran, comic book writer G. Willow Wilson and drug law activist Sanho Tree.
