proud to be a facebooker

Here is a great article about how dissent in Egypt is using facebook to organize. The most interesting thing to me is that facebook is working better than the internet by itself was. It too easy for the government to go to the site and shut it down. They can’t shut down or block facebook, because too many people use it for the mundane. That allows it to be used for other things like free speech. I’m quite excited to be working here. Pray that we can help make the world a better place.

    The Maryland General Assembly just blocked facebook and myspace ‘for fear of viruses’. Whats the deal fb? Now you’re being lumped into the same category as trashy myspace in the eyes of IT managers everywhere.
