Tunisian video activists (and Ethan Zuckerman) on BoingBoing tv

From Berkman Fellow Ethan Zuckerman...

At ETech, a few weeks back, I had the pleasure of doing a video interview with Xeni Jardin. Xeni’s one of my very favorite journalists, in part because she’s passionate about both technology and the developing world - she’s travelled and reported extensively in Latin America and West Africa, and frequently brings topics up on BoingBoing that might not otherwise be included on a tech/pop culture/intellectual property/DIY blog.

Xeni wanted to feature some of the topics I talked about in my Cute Cats talk, but realized that it’s hard to summarize the entire talk in a short videocast. So we chose a small segment of the talk, about Tunisian video activism, and sat down in the hall of the conference hotel for a chat about propoganda, video activism, censorship and human rights.

And now it’s online. And pretty good, if I do say so myself. Feel free to go onto BoingBoing and tell Xeni you like it. Or whatever you really think about it...
