Social Media and Impeachment of the President: Civic discontent embodied through massive street protests played a critical role in her impeachment. Many have speculated that the rise of social media played a role in the processes leading up to her impeachment.
What role did social media play in formulating people's beliefs? Did social media mobilize people to participate in political protests?
What characterizes social media users and what are the implications going forward? In this presentation, Yong Suk Lee of Stanford University examines these questions using a survey he conducted before and after the impeachment of Park Geun-Hye, and ultimately aims to shed some light on how social media and news disseminated through social media might affect society.

They will discuss the design and preliminary implementation of a digital school-fee payment system in Benin.

Matt Sheehan, former China correspondent for The Huffington Post and The WorldPost, argues that the relationship has arrived at a counter-intuitive new equilibrium, one in which the flows of talent, money and ideas between the two ecosystems are at an all-time high, even while companies and products remain stubbornly confined to their own markets.
Sheehan presents the implications of this new equilibrium for companies, policymakers and global innovation. Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure.
