“Popular revolution is kind of contagious.” -Kate Cronin-Furman, Wronging Rights
Lots is happening in the broader region of North Africa and the Middle East-ish, and I’m no expert on it, even though I’m very interested in keeping track of what is happening. Luckily, there are lots of other bloggers who are.
One of my favourites is Wronging Rights, which did a very lovely composite piece tracking some of the most recent news from eight countries on Friday. It also includes a great website (Blogs of War crisis monitoring service) for staying on top of development’s without staying glued to Al-Jazeera all day long.
There has been lots of criticism about what is happening and what is not happening and the process of change. But, change is happening, as imperfect as the process and outcomes may be. Its pretty cool to be seeing it unfold day by day.
