There has been a lot of talk about the spontaneous uprising in Egypt, thanks to Facebook and Twitter.  As usual, there is more to the story and a history of some years of planning and strategizing, cross-border collaboration, as well as smart use of tactics and tools.  A little bit of history of the April 6th movement in Egypt is in this Al Jazeera video (aired prior to Mubarak's ouster), and in this NYT article that picks up on the reporting of Al Jazeera:  Will be interesting to see whether Egyptian activists will now helping movements in other countries plan non-violent resistance, activist leadership, and the long road towards democratic change.
