Videos, blogs and social media all have a big impact on international human rights

Google’s own corporate blog had two major postings in August on the Internet and advancement of human rights (and political dissidence) overseas. The most important posting appears Aug. 24, “What do you think about human rights (and your rights) online?", here. The posting discusses the role of user-generated video in human rights, and has a label of “video”.

There is an earlier posting “How do you advance online free expressions” Aug. 12, also posted on YouTube’s official blog (“Broadcasting ourselves”) here with labels of “free expression” (like mine, “international free speech”) and “policy and issues” (which most of my blogs are about by default).
