Over the past few days I’ve come across a wide variety of video documenting the run up to the G20 meetings in PIttsburgh as well as events, coverage, and commentary from the meetings and surrounding areas. Any large scale meeting of the world’s most powerful leaders is grounds for protest at various levels. And when police are prepared in riot gear trouble often tends to break out. That’s just how it is and will always be.
I was honored to be on a panel this Monday with David Sarno (LA Times), Chris Tolles (Topix) and Christina Gagnier (Politech) discussing Citizen Journalism. Thanks to Geoff Brown and Social media Club LA for hooking it up and Alexia Tsotsis (LA Weekly) for moderating!
