TEDTalks is a video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

In this edition, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and texts can “help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics.” Social media can allow for quickly spread of information, allowing for greater awareness of issues around the world.
