There are a series of very interesting developments around the G20 protests in London today, indicative of new uses of technology for advocacy and collaboration.
Twitter / live blogging
The Guardian has a liveblog of protest related events, found here. They post an interesting Twitter roundup, as below:
Twitter round up:
Last Hours: “Cops & security guards on every corner of the city.”
Christian Action: “Lots of jeans & trainers in City today. Strange air of anticipation.”
Russell Brand: “Today at the Bank at noon I shall be protesting by being enraptured with joy and beauty and not being bludgeoned into tedium.”
Pop Chris “Staff @ RBS, Bishopsgate are told that once in, they cannot leave the building until end of business. Expecting the worst.“
Also from the Guardian, a very beautiful interactive visualization, scenario planning style, of different groups involved in the protests.
