- I was very interesseted too by the Mediterranean forum on digital culture, and the links with the arabic revolution. It was such appropriate to speak about that in an other mediterranean country, and to learn about how people used the digital and global media in one part of the world, that could be seen as a local revolution, but concerning the total humanity. And also it would be great to follow the discussion, cause : the revolution is going on and needs to be thinked to be realized, and new models seem to be necessary to invent. But, in that way, it is not only a local problem, but a global, if we think to the difficulties that each country can have with the economic crise. New medias could help to these non institutionnal exchanges. And help to find ways to invent a virtual global public space
I am from a mediterranean area (Marseille) and i know about the energy but also about the difficulties to make things go , and even to make things.
