Iran Protests and the Media: My Appearance on CNN Live

On Tuesday, I was invited onto CNN Live to discuss how Iranians have been utilizing social media tools like Twitter and YouTube to communicate about the Iran election protests. I have been covering the subject extensively over at Mashable.

The below is the recorded video of my appearance. I was on the “Blogger Bunch” with Fausta Wertz ( and Brad Friedman ( Although I thought it would focus on social tools and Iran, I had to pull out a bit of my Poli Sci education and discuss Iran’s stability and the Grand Ayatollah.

I will once again appear on CNN Live Friday at 12:00 PM ET/9:00 AM PT, this time to discuss the iPhone 3G S and iPhone applications. Now, how did I do? Please let me know so I do better tomorrow!
