Wow, Egypt!

12 Feb

So Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has now resigned, finally relinquishing power after 18 chaotic days of protest and three decades of rule. Now there’s an excuse for a party. Just read CNN’s report on events and it sounds like it would have been an amazing celebration, (the footage is insane!!) when Vice President Omar Suleiman announced the switch in authority to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.

And isn’t it a testament to our modern times that Facebook is being credited with helping to start the revolution? I bet Zuckerburg never dreamed he’d be helping ailing countries when he first came up with that social network plan in his dank little college bedroom. Action started online way before the protest on January 25 and a Facebook event page actually helped to trigger the revolt.

AMAZING!!! What an incredible day.
