via social networks. I later blogged, spoke,
on it (and other videos) as promised.
What is Prop 8
? "The clause 'Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California' is officially a part of the California state constitution (as of November 5, 2008). The California Supreme Court heard oral arguments for and against the legality of the passage of Proposition 8. In the 6-1 decision, the Supreme Court judges ruled to uphold Proposition 8."[cit]
Regarding visibility, politics and media, Knowing Glances writes: "Ubiquitous computing environments serve resources to individuals based on notions of what is appropriate for each individual in a particular context. They mediate identity, social relations, public and private spaces, and social power. They should be designed with a critical awareness of the politics of visibility."[cit]
Video and film have been used throughout their history to witness
, and document
, atrocities of those in power, as well as "people's history"
of utopian political moments.
