Please do! Honestly, I'm surprised at the lack of net-chatter about it. My corner of the internet exploded over the Iran elections, so I'm not sure why this is so much different. I don't think I actually posted about the protests in Iran, but that was because everyone was already posting huge amounts of info. I was definitely following the news, though. But almost no one is talking about Egypt, so here I am. :p If I can get my thoughts organized, I wanna write a post about Why It's Important, because I REALLY think it is. It's not just "interesting because it's protests." There's all sorts of stuff wrapped up in this, like whether a gov should have a kill switch over communications tech, whether Internet access is a right, how much influence one gov should have over another, etc. OH, I HAS THOUGHTS.

Another important link you could add: akuma-river's linkpost (http://akuma-river.dreamwidth.org/389975.html), for people who enjoy MILLIONS OF LINKS like I do. This one is far more comprehensive than mine, since I'm only posting stuff that strikes me personally.
