Curating A Revolution: YouTube’s Head of News and Politics on Video From Iran

Standard

June 25, 2009, 0700 GMT — Here is a revealing interview from Al Jazeera’s new media guy with YouTube’s head of news and politics, Steve Grove. Grove explains why YouTube has made the decisions they have lately (moreorless violating their own TOS) to keep YouTube as uncensored and as open a platform as possible for media  dissemination during the Iran election aftermath.

Some of these issues regarding YouTube and media from Iran were discussed in my interview from June 22, 2009 with IT security expert, Ariel Silverstone. That is here.
