What should be a right in the digital age? On March 21st, the occasion of the human rights celebration in South Africa, a blogathon — many bloggers on a single topic at the same time — will address this question. “Human rights have been on everyone’s agenda lately. From the political revolutions that shook the Middle East and North Africa which sustained their motivation through a universal appeal to them, to questions of privacy, openness and access to information in the post-wikileaks world, human rights as a political, social and developmental framework for discussion is very much active. We want to get your opinions.”
Individuals, corporations and government organizations are sitting on vast treasure troves of archived data that can be branded and then digitized as tiny propaganda across the Web to support their own agendas.
