  • Humanitarianism in the network age

    155 views 2 years ago
    I was honoured to speak recently in Bangkok at the Asia-Pacific unveiling of 'Humanitarianism in the Network Age' (HINA), a groundbreaking new United Nations social media study: http://www.unocha.org/hina.

    HINA examines the implications for how a world of increasingly informed, connected and self-reliant communities will affect the delivery of humanitarian aid. It lays out some of the most pertinent features of these new technologies, such as SMS, social media and others, and identifies the opportunities and difficulties in applying them.

    With so much social media content published by multinational corporations aimed at marketing to affluent consumers, I find this excellent report refreshing because it addresses the aspirations and interests of many millions of people who don't normally make it into the everyday digital story frame.
