Why TIME Chose ‘The Protester.’

The video above shows TIME Managing editor Richard Stengel with Kurt Andersen, author of the cover story, “The Protester,” discussing how they came about the decision to highlight the global protest movements of the year and giving recognition to 'The Protester’ in 2011.


I am currently in a communications class, “Convergent Media,” where I will be using my existing social media accounts like this tumblr and my twitter as outlets for the course. #PaceConvergent will help me keep track of and organize my class entries. We also have a twitter account as a class, @PaceConvergent that I welcome you guys to follow. (It’d be a great help to my class!) I hope that my class entries will add to the randomness of my tumblr, and can’t wait to see how this project goes!
