How Paltalk Could Have Prevented The G-20 Riots
The news alert from 1010 WINS was delivered to my cellphone just a few minutes ago:
"G-20 protesters in downtown London have smashed windows and entered the Bank of Scotland Building."
I know hind sight is G-20-20 - but this could have all been avoided had the summit leaders just downloaded Paltalk onto their computers. I'm not kidding.
Instead of paying the expense of traveling to London. Instead of having to pay tons of overtime to cops and security forces to try to keep the summit secure. They could have all met on Paltalk.
Some of the meetings could have been held in public rooms, providing a degree of transparency and outreach to the global community in a way that's never been experienced.
Private meetings could have been held in secure private rooms on Paltalk.
As the largest multi-media interactive program on the Internet with more than 4 million unique users, Paltalk is the best forum for such an important high-level gathering of world leaders.
Not only would it have saved God-only-knows how many 10s of thousands of dollars during the very same recession they're gathering to try to solve, but it would have kept the world leaders, and the London infrastructure safe.
Well, I bet my bosses at Paltalk would have even donated the necessary virtual auditoriums and bandwidth as a public service. Our way of contributing to the cause of restoring economic stability to the world.
And by the way, even the protesters would have benefitted. They could have opened rooms on Paltalk where they could, from anywhere in the world, log in and protest the G-20 if they like. Without having gone through the cost of traveling to London and facing injury in the mayhem or arrest.
Barack Obama is said to be the most Internet savvy president of all time. He should really consider utilizing Paltalk for the next summit. Or for the next time he wants to talk directly to the American people. Because on Patalk, his constituents can immediately talk back to the president. He says he wants to stay in touch with the people who elected him to serve. Well, Paltalk is the way to do it.
