On Stop Kony 2012

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, go to twitter and search #Kony2012.

You can see the video that caused all the hype here: http://www.kony2012.com/

But you should also read this: Kony 2012 campaign: Oprah and bracelets won’t solve problem (from The Guradian via Bill Easterly)

And then to learn more about the group behind the video “Invisible Children” read this: Invisible Children: Saviors or Sensationalists

Then you can read this – In Defence of the @Kony12 campaign

Some more food for thought (via Jillian C York, HT: Laura Seay ):

If we say #Kony2012 is a good idea, then we’re approving an environment in which causes compete by production value. Like Hollywood.
