This past weekend I was a panelist at the sixth annual Rising Tide blogger conference here in my home town of New Orleans. Video of the panel, on social media and social justice, is below. I went to the conference as a spectator and ended up as a panelist because one of the scheduled panelists was waylaid by Hurricane Irene and I was asked to fill in. Hopefully I did a good job on the fly. My opening remarks begin at 00:09:00.
