What can we learn about social media and society in general from the hype generated by Kony 2012?
You would be wrong if you suspected that ggeneral awareness has not increased. One may think people do not invest a lot in the world issues. but trust me, if you tell to 1000 people they can help in the fight against cancer by donating 1 dollar maybe, only one person will give a dollar. But If you tell 10 000, then you'll have at least 10 people who will donate something. some may give even more than 1 dollar. Some may even invest themselves in the fight. As for how we can excite people to invest themselves in good causes, there is no answer to that (in my opinion). Most people would gladly give some money to causes, but they wouldn't do anything else. They have a life, yo! they have their own problems. All what you can do is to inform a lot of people so that you can have a few who would join the cause!

Yeah i don't deny the movie was excellent. But I'm pretty sure that on Youtube there are a lotta moving videos maybe not as moving as Kony 2012, but still. I think for example about the "Love Language" made by the jubilee project. That video is moving, but it never reached 2 million views. Plus the same Kony 2012 video was uploaded on Vimeo and didn't spread as widely as on Youtube (right now the vid has only 17.4 million views). I think the question that should be raised is how can we have a video seen by over 50 million people in 4 days? How can a topic be spread world wide with as much effectiveness than the Stop Kony Show? There are over 850 millons people on Facebook & over 225 millons people on Twitter. How can one convey something that would reach all of the Web 2.0 network, like the Invisible Children did

Education: who should have control over children's education?
I think Teacher should have the biggest responsibility in children's education. I mean we all spend most of our youth in school. We start at 8 a.m. and finish at 6 p.m. If we remove the time we spend sleeping, doing our stuffs (hobbies or whatever), there's not much time spent with the parents. Therefore, teachers must take the biggest responsibility in the youth future. I've always believed that school isn't just all about learning how to read and do maths. It should be about building children, learning them more about how to behave in life.
