A direct attack on the net and social media by powers that be
Advertisements [?]
that is coming...

OWS relies on social media to get eyeballs to channels... it relies on twitter and facebook for coordination. It relies on ustream for letting the rest of us SEE what is happening. It just stands to reason, and no it is not paranoia. There is no way I can physically be in St. Louis, Oakland, San Diego, and Portland at the same time in the span of two hours. There is simply NO WAY.

So sooner or later what happened in Egypt and Libya will happen here. The Net has become THE WEAPON of this global revolution and it is BYPASSING the mainstream media in ways that should (I am sure is) be scary to those in power. From their POV they are very well dealing with an insurgency... and the people are no longer as afraid as they were...

But that will not shock me. To wake one day and find that access to web has been greatly curtailed.
