Sunday, February 6, with the opening march, started the World Social Forum 2011 in Dakar.

This FSM is covered extensively by the mainstream and alternative media, but have the disadvantage of being asynchronous. They talk about what happened, announce what will come, but do not say what is happening. What is the purpose of live coverage. Radio and television have accustomed us to live for major events. Internet opens the spectrum of possibilities for live for smaller events, and this more flexible, technically simple and less expensive.
