What is a 'Tahrir Square' moment?  A moment that doesn't fizzle out?  A
moment that brings substantial change?  How, and importantly *when*, do
you judge the (non-)fizzling out of the Tahrir Square moment, or its
bringing about of substantial change?  A month after the moment?  Ten
months after the moment?  Sixty-four years after the moment?  When will
we find out whether Egypt has had its Tahrir Square moment?  Who will
have the authority to tell us?

Perhaps we should think of creating a Tahrir Square index of
revolutionary moments?

Cheers,
Pranesh
