E-lection 2010: Can Britain's Politicians Connect?
Tom Cheshire, Editorial Assistant, Wired
Anna Doble, Online Producer, Channel 4 News
Alberto Nardelli, Co-Founder & CEO, tweetminster.co.uk
Chair: Keith Burnet, Director of Communications, Chatham House
As the British general election campaign gets underway the speakers will discuss how new online media, such as blogs and social networking sites, can transform the way young people engage in the political process and influence their decision making. Following the success of the Obama campaign's social media strategy in the US, will new media have the same impact in Britain?
There will be a drinks reception beforehand from 18.30.
