    The number of people in power for more than 20 years, i believe you can count with 10 fingers.

    It may be all over but the shouting for Mubarak:
    By 3 p.m. on Friday afternoon (January 28), the protesters in central Cairo were chanting: “Where is the army? Come and see what the police are doing to us. We want the army.” And that is the main question, really: where is the Egyptian army in all this?

    Like armies everywhere, even in dictatorships, the Egyptian army does not like to use violence against its own people. It would much rather leave that sort of thing to the police, who are generally quite willing to do it. But in Alexandria, by mid-afternoon on Friday, the police had stopped fighting the protesters and started talking to them. This is how regimes end.

    Welcome to the Facebook Revolution and Open Source Insurgency.

    In an era of ubiquitous photo/video with instant global distribution....all it takes is one single "perfect spark".

    What's going to be the next Saigon Street Execution(as seen below, NSFW)?

    What perfect spark(hopefully a peaceful, non-violent one) could provide citizens in the US with the momentum to leverage social media to effect real change on the old-media centric, special interest owned, political landscape?
