Arrested Pirate Party Member Becomes Tunisian Minister
After weeks of public protests on- and offline the Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali resigned and escaped the country last Friday. Today, the head of the transitional government, Prime Minister Mohammed Ghannouchi, announced his new cabinet members which include a familiar name. Slim Amamou, the Pirate Party member and freedom of speech activist who was arrested just a few days ago, is now the new Minister of Youth and Sports.

1. I'll be interested to see how their revolution plays out
in the months to come. I hope they are able to actually put together a government that works for the people. I think it's a great sign that they emptied the jails of political prisoners.
