Social Networks and Revolution

Hi folks,

Here's a program showing how the Internet enabled the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt to happen, and a panel discussion about what happens from here.  I like that it shows, clearly, the need for "Net neutrality" and the prevention of the net being captured by corporate interest.  Also why the "Internet Kill Switch" is a bad idea for freedom and democracy, showing the forked tongue being used by the administration who demands free access to the Internet for others, but is getting ready to deny it to its own citizens.

There's a lot of work that needs to be done.

Andrew's post to the thread of my video of Magical Godmother Sings the Rainbow Connection made me think.  I am going on 69 and Andrew is 26.
