Last time we visited Chat Republic, Angelo Fernando, prolific blogger of the Hoi Polloi Report,, spoke about “how we ought to be more authentic even as we embrace the tools that turn us into non-stop communication machines.”

Now we can view Angelo’s presentation “The Human Approach to Communication in a Web 2.0 World” from last week’s IABC Phoenix professional development luncheon.

Angelo is the author of the recently released book Chat Republic: How Social Media Drives Us to Be Human 1.0 in a Web 2.0 World. I invite you to check out my review of his book on Amazon. For more information, visit

Revisit Chat Republic, a “very young place with deep and diverse conversations; our constitution is a work in progress. Social media is the pervasive ‘software’ we use to hammer out the constitution.” Well said, Angelo!

What are your thoughts on Chat Republic? What does it mean to you?
