neweurasia on al-Jazeera’s The Stream

We here at neweurasia have been fortunate enough to get a healthy amount of coverage from much bigger news agencies around the world, but few have been such enjoyable experiences as our appearances on al-Jazeera’s new social-media driven talk show, The Stream. The show’s headed up by Derrick “DNA” Ashong, a performer, ethno-musicologist and online personality, but it has a rotating series of couch guests who work hard to jam a mere half-hour with smart conversations on a number of social/new media-related issues in depth.

We here at neweurasia have been fortunate enough to get a healthy amount of coverage from much bigger news agencies around the world, but few have been such enjoyable experiences as our appearances on al-Jazeera’s new social-media driven talk show, The Stream.

The show’s headed up by Derrick “DNA” Ashong, a performer, ethno-musicologist and online personality, but it has a rotating series of couch guests who work hard to jam a mere half-hour with smart conversations on a number of social/new media-related issues in depth.

So far, we’ve appeared twice on the show, and we invite our readers to check out the episodes, as well as the other episodes on the site (check out their recent bit about Sudan):

- Correcting the Story in Turkmenistan concerns the role of social media in exposing and responding to the explosion in Abadan. There was a special guest appearance of sorts by Annasoltan.

- From Blog to Book in Central Asia concerns our book CyberChaikhana: Digital Conversations from Central Asia. This was actually one of The Stream’s pilot episodes, which is in my eyes pretty cool in its own right.
