The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, Dan Farber, and Steve Gillmor — struggle with the news and raw emotions of the death of Robin Williams and the Ferguson upheaval. The intersection of social and mainstream media is no longer the big story it once seemed to be.
Instead, the speed with which technology, particularly mobile, has transformed not only the reporting but the actual arc of events has contributed to the deep impact on our emotional psyche. How social networks work to protect families, news media, and ordinary citizens from the abuse of trolling and worse is suddenly front and center.
