Off-topic: Power of the Internet

Events in Egypt, (and also Algeria, Yemen, and Jordan that I've heard about) are definitely interesting, it's like watching history. CNN is calling it the Facebook Revolution, because there's no organized groups or political parties leading the protests but just a flow of people who mostly organized themselves on Facebook and Twitter, who realized after events in Tunisia that they could stand up for themselves.

Just shows how powerful the internet can be.
