Sheila Coronel , CPJ board member, director of Columbia University's Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism, co-founder of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism.Nazila Fathi , correspondent for The New York Times , Nieman Fellow at Harvard University.Ahmed Shihab-Eldin , producer and co-host of "The Stream," Al-Jazeera English.Danny O'Brien , Internet Advocacy Coordinator, Committee to Protect Journalists In a moment of wild exuberance following the fall of President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, Google executive and protest leader Wael Ghonim said, "If you want to liberate a government, give them the Internet." The reality is more complex. The Internet and social media have facilitated communication and revolutionized reporting from the frontlines of revolution. But these technologies have also been appropriated by repressive governments for data mining and surveillance. Social revolution--including the 1986 People Power uprising in the Philippines--obviously preceded Twitter, but the question now is whether the process has accelerated and if so, why? The panel looks at the impact and future of social media around the world, from Egypt to Iran to China.moreless
