Who'd look twice at some pigeons?
As silly as this RFC1149 reference might be; it is actually a pertinent view.
In this modern age, we like to think any access to information is always high tech and all.
But there are less technical but nevertheless worthy ways to exchange information, talking about transmitting packets through amateur radio actually bypasses the very important thinking of using the amateur radio itself as the information exchange.
A lot of revolutions in the past were started with radio (both by taking official broadcasting stations or using amateur transmissions) as well as even less technical fliers and good old word-of-mouth.
Granted, few things are as powerful as the plethora of multimedia accounts, the videos and pictures especially; and first hand accounts are always different from the editorial media. But there's nothing so unique about using YouTube or Vimeo, Twitter or Identi.ca as well as your social network and blogs, etc that can't be accomplished using other communication methods.
Sometimes it's just a matter of the need forcing ingenuity.
