  • @Sree Show EPISODE #1: Demystifying Technology, Digital Mentors & Wikipedia 01-07-15

    In the inaugural @Sree Show, meet Prof. Andrew Lih (@FuzHeado), America's top expert on two topics: Wikipedia and the Great Firewall of China. He'll explain what's new on Wikipedia, the Chinese Internet and will share his best tech tips (and maybe explain his unusual Twitter handle). We will also discuss the importance of #DigiMentor - your digital mentors who can help you demystify technology. Lih is Sree's DigiMentor. Prof. Lih teaches digital media at American University in Washington, DC, and is the author of "Wikipedia Revolution: How a Bunch of Nobodies Made the World's Greatest Encyclopedia."
