Turning Slacktivism into Online Activism

In this presentation, Boyd Neil a former political activist and trade unionist looks at the fallacy that social web advocacy and activism channels energy away from making real-world social and political change. Using experience as a political and union organizer in the 70s and early 80s, Boyd demonstrates that slacktivism online is a failure not of the social web but of poor ‘organizing’.
