A great talk on social media’s role in Iran, MIT university.

Wandering in web sometimes leads to good results. I just watched a video on MIT university, discussing how social media has become an important player in Iran during and after protests for presidency election.

The interesting point in this video is that they invited two highly effective Iranian site owners to the talk, Mehdi Yahyanejad, the owner and one of the co-founder of Balatarin, and Cameran Ashraf, the manager of Accessnow , which makes the whole talk to point to what happened in Iran.

Although it’s more than two hours, I highly recommend it . If you don’t have enough time, don’t miss the first 20 minutes. Find the video here.
