Tunisia; technological collective action at work

"People risked their lives in the street, with some getting a bullet for their troubles, but the internet played a significant role in organizing these protests and in disseminating news and pictures of them to the world."

Group action is easier when the technology to easily interconnect and interact is there.  Collective action is much easier when so many people are able to share information and planning in an instant.

I started a blog about Internet Collective Action here,  I believe this is the wave of the future.
