This is disturbing. If it works, other nations will take notice. Right now, we – and more importantly, they – are dependent on ‘old’ media.
Egypt Cuts Off Most Internet and Cell Service
Egypt has cut off nearly all Internet traffic into and out of the country in the largest blackout of its kind, according to firms that monitor international data flows. Cellphone networks were also disrupted.
I certainly hope this doesn’t set a precident. In this day and age, cell and internet blackouts would leave many people without information, or the means of sharing information. Not good for social change or democracy!
That’s what I mean by ‘other nations will take notice’. Easy way to shut down rebellion – especially by young people. I guess though, it would depend on the government’s abiltiy to actually do that.
And welcome Ahab!
