I bet they have a lot to say these days with the effects of technology (videos, youtube and cellphones) on the Iranian election and protests. You might be interested in checking out my review of Neda. I just added a bit of wiki information to your data point so that other Lunchers can enjoy their story. Thanks for the review. Have you ever contributed to their content?

About this topic

Wiki

Spark is a weekly audio blog of smart and unexpected trendwatching. It’s not just technology for gearheads, it’s about the way technology affects our lives, and the world around us.

What’s a Spark story? Wikis in the workplace, Guitar Hero in your living room, or why the new trend in design is the trailer park.

Spark is a conversation that happens on the air and here on the Web. Spark is something you and the Spark team build together. You can join the conversation by checking out the blog for the stories and leave your comments. Get your voice on the air by leaving a message.
