Global Voices Summit: Insights into citizen media and protest movements

I know of at least two of my friends in the Wikimedia world (@busydot and @psubhashish) who attended this summit. But, I share this post more for some of the keen insights into the recent protest movements and their political transformations (look at the India Against Corruption movement and it’s political avatar, the Aam Aadmi Party) and their use of social media for their narrative.


The year 2014 was a year for review, taking stock and then boldly going where many have gone before. I would never have guessed at the beginning of the year of the scale of changes that swept through my life in this year.

I got married.

I reduced the vast areas of interest to geography, space and digital sciences besides having a professional interest in banking and financial services. I pruned out my various memberships to reflect this change in my professional affiliations and hobbies. I continue that process in 2015.

I went on my first international trip to Malaysia.
