I have zero interest in Twitter. Hell I'm not even sure what a Blackberry does. But given the last three days in Iran I sure see the value of the Twitter as a means of communication when a government tries to shut everything down. Here's an excerpt from a Galleycat story today.
Douglas Rushkoff on Twitter and Totalitarianism
In a new essay, author Douglas Rushkoff praised the power of Twitter and Facebook in Iran--arguing these tools will lead to "the end of totalitarianism."
At the Daily Beast, the author of "Life Inc." details how Iranian hackers have subverted a government crack-down on the Internet through proxy servers and the Twitter hash-tag "#Iranelection" to sneak around the censorship.
