Free the Internet, free the people

The best way to a better tomorrow is using the internet and spreading word about the many scams, controversies and wrongdoings being perpetuated by the governments and the giant corporate of the world. The governments also know that, and therefore are leaving no stone unturned in making the internet less open and more controlled.

The congress is doing it in the US with SOPA/PIPA and the Indian government is doing it with trying to block content on the web. I was born in a free democratic nation and i want to die a free man too. If you want to enjoy your freedom too, then support Wikipedia’s black out and spread word about it  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SOPA_initiative/Learn_more.
These are the beginnings of a new kind of war, one where people from all the world will get together against the governments. The battlefield this time will be cyberspace.

Social Media for Social Change

NGOs, non profits and any other social organisation which is working towards social change in the society most importantly needs to make use of social media. I was recently invited by Center of Civil Society ( http://ccs.in ) for a talk on social media at their conference titled ipolicy for Development Leaders’ . It was a pleasure getting to meet some great people who are trying to bring about all kinds of good changes through their initiatives. Find below the video from the talk, hope you can gain something out of it as well.

 

 

Social Media Business Bootcamp in Delhi NCR

I am conducting a two day business bootcamp in Noida in the  month of January. Come join in if you love social media or are interested in exploring the same :) Details below –

“Having a strong online reputation allows people to listen to you, buy your product/service and be a part of what you have to offer. Social Media has taken this world by storm. This new media is creating a new generation of influencers and it is resetting the hierarchy of authority, while completely freaking out those who once held power without objection. The truth is that most of the existing formulas, methodologies, and systems miss or completely ignore the role of new influencers to inspire action, cause change, spark trends and recruit advocates.
