Today the Blog to the future crew will knock on Judy Rebick’s door for a scheduled interview about social media and the role blogging may have in ‘participatory democracy,’ a term Rebick uses in her book, Transforming Power.
It should be interesting. I am curious to hear her thoughts about bloggers internationally. Rebick was very particular when I initially spoke to her about Rabble.ca, the media organization she founded in 2001: this is not a blog. Instead she said, Rabble was run ‘just like a newspaper.’ I’m curious as to what she means by that and why she decided to launch this ‘newspaper’ online.
