[liberationtech] No Saudi Spring

We have a superb cover story this month by Madawi Al-Rasheed on the failure
of Saudi dissidents to launch a successful protest movement.

Al-Rasheed concludes:

"The Saudi case attests to the limits of cyber-utopianism, the optimism
surrounding the so-called Twitter and Facebook revolutions. The Web is
useful for publicizing action, but where the state is the only institution
that matters, effectively bringing people together offline may be
impossible."
