As I wander thru the Copenhagen streets (of my mind), I find that I want to know the real story about what is happening behind the doors of global debates and in the streets of chanting and conversation.
The UN Climate Change conference (see Hopenhagen) is arguably the first social media-covered story relevant to the whole world.
