This video is the introduction to a panel, titled "Human Hybrids: Creating a Global Identity", that took place during the ID Mashup Conference at Harvard Law School on June 20, 2006. The video features co-founder and CEO of ASAFO Media LLC Derrick Ashong, Slam Poet Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo, Jair of Imaginy Community Network, and Jamaican Educator Marvin Hall, Halls of Learning.
Panel description from the conference website:
"In a world where people are increasingly able to connect across cultural and geographic boundaries, what is the future of human identity? Has technology equalized the transmission of culture, or amplified the voices of some to the increased exclusion of others? In the formation of a global identity, what will be the criteria that define “who we are” and who we hear?"
Time: 6 min. 59 sec.
