    The World is Upside Down: The Impact of Design and Social Media on Politics and Society

    The web and mobile phones are rapidly changing how we connect to friends, family and our community, as well as with communities around the globe. It's hardly imaginable that social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter, along with mobile phones, could help to peacefully topple regimes in the Middle East and so effectively rally global support for the victims of the earthquakes in Japan.

    Join a panel of web, mobile, design and social media experts as they explore the future of communication and its potential as a catalyst for positive change.
