"Twitter co-founder Biz Stone ... how it was used recently in Egypt to help organize the revolution and how it has been used to spread democracy movements in other countries."
Fuller description of this interview, link to podcast, etc. avail at:

No one can ignore the extraordinary pace and impact of Twitter's emerging role in international communications, politics, revolution.  But, what are the implications for teaching and learning?
