Online social change: easy to organize, hard to win

Are you an organizer?   A part-time, full-time or some-time advocate?   An activist?   Do you use technology?   Rely on technology?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I encourage you to watch sociologist Zeynep Tufekci's TED Talk, below.

If you feel so inclined, leave your thoughts about her views in a comment.

One explanation I have about why online advocacy and activism is so popular is that the barrier to entry is low.   So low that anyone can create a hashtag, petition, website.
