Description

Authoritarian governments try to isolate individuals from one another, but in the age of social media this is impossible to do. Online, people discover that they are not alone. As one blogger put it, "Now I know who my comrades are." How has the Internet empowered these individuals? How have leaders and lesser-known bloggers used technology in China, Cuba, and Russia to fight injustice?

Emily Parker, author of Now I Know Who My Comrades Are, is a digital diplomacy advisor and senior fellow at the New America Foundation. She is a former International Affairs Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, an Arthur Ross Fellow at Asia Society's Center on U.S.-China Relations, and a global policy fellow at Carnegie Moscow Center, where she researched the role of blogging and social media in today's Russia. She spent over five years working for The Wall Street Journal, first as a writer in Hong Kong and later as an editor in New York. From 2004 to 2005, she wrote a Wall Street Journal column called "Virtual Possibilities: China and the Internet." She was also a staff op-ed editor for The New York Times.
