Interview with Carlos Hernandez – on the social capital of social media

Carlos Hernandez does something I had not heard of before. He trains unemployed baby boomers to find work through social media.

Listen to what he had to say about the role of social media for good in society and what Carlos said to Twitter’s Evan Williams.

I really like Carlos’ approach to social media. The early web was an egalitarian place where all were equal and most things were shared. And then the big corporations came along and changed things.

Could social media, the great leveller, play a similar role? Will it survive its rapid absorption into the mainstream?

This is my first interview from the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco.
