Evolution of the Protest

Wash U student Shlomo Goltz has made a fascinating and beautiful "graphic essay" of the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle, focusing on the role of technology in helping protesters to organize and mobilize on the street.

Also see work by Melissa A Wall (Cal State-Northridge), such as "Press Conferences or Puppets: NGOs' v Street Groups' Communication in the Battle of Seattle."

H/T to Howard Rheingold at SmartMobs for the Goltz link.
