New Orleans: Why Online Activism Needs to Start Offline

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.
