Recasting the Net Round Two: Recasting Power

17th September 2009

Blogging, You Tube, Facebook and Twitter are all having a huge impact on modern politics - but how well are our democratic institutions responding? Are online tools more effective than traditional methods of holding power to account?

Recasting the Net: Recasting Power was the second of three live and online public series curated by Polis and Channel 4/4ip's Team, designed to explore and discuss the next phase of the web and the social and political implications of a public newly empowered with 21st century tools.

Speakers: Charlie Elphicke, Conservative Prospect MP for Dover, Cllr Paul Tilsey, Charlie Beckett, Director of Polis and members of Birmingham's political and digital community.
