The only way to change things is to change the system. If you don't change everything nothing will says @birgittaj #samaracda
Prof. Tricia Wood @pkbwood
Jonsdottir says she and other newbies of Iceland govt "didn't know anything" - created an incredible freedom for them.
Ron Nurwisah @boyreporter
#SamaraCda @birgittaJ starts by outlining how she got into politics. Outsider/activist broke a lot of rules, preconceptions, traditions

#samaraCDA IMMI cherrypicks the best shield, transparency, media laws from around the world.

"What is unique is that we are cherry picking the best freedom of information laws from around the world for Iceland" @birgittaj #samaracda
Prof. Tricia Wood @pkbwood
Jonsdottir been involved for a long time in effort to develop legal frame to protect FOI online. #wikileaks #samaracda

#samaraCDA @birgittaJ hopes that IMMI can be "icebreaker" globally for FOI, media laws.
Prof. Tricia Wood @pkbwood
Jonsdottir says international law firms keep reporting re: corruption offline, "gagging" journalists. FOI online about more than #wikileaks
Ron Nurwisah @boyreporter
#samaraCDA @birgittaJ hopes that laws will evolve to keep pace with tech, society. Cites ex. of Canada's FOI laws that have not been updated
Caitlin Kealey @caitlinkealey
Sure many of you want to hear abt #wikileaks. So you know it is more than Julian assange. It's ppl all over the world. @birgittaj #samaracda
