It might be because I'm young and somewhat impressionable. But who can't resist the words: change, revolution, and politics in the same sentence? (Obama fellows understand this more than anyone).
The social media influence goes beyond status updates, is the window to world updates, a fast paced race that makes us feel small. And if we can learn something from the Egyptian crowd at Tahir Square is that not matter how small we might be, we could lead to greatness for the good.
After 17 days of protests, where the pacificist demonstrations turned violent and back again to a calm group of chants and petitions, president Mubarak might be resigning today.(He didn't, expect a post about it soon.)
Obviously, there is a hidden voice recommending the 82-year old to step aside but that pressure is because the rest of the world heard the Egyptians closer than ever.
The world paid attention to the Egyptian people thanks to their admirable determination or we can also call it: stubborness. A lesson that upcoming manifestations of any kind should learn and apply. We do not know what might happen with a new government or a democratic system that is also corruptable. However, what I am sure is that we are at the verge of REAL change thanks to a young generation weaponized with ideas and keyboards.
