I am constantly in awe how technology has changed the ability to protect human rights. While the govt in Iran has cut off all cell phone usage, internet access, reporting, etc., we are still able to find out what is going on. Anonymous, the hacker group, has assisted some Iranians in successfully telling them how to still gain internet access to get the word out. That is so awesome.
Also, SIM cards have been taken out of some phones to reduce tracking. I am constantly looking at my Twitter (I am watching an Iranian girl) and Facebook has been getting frequent updates.
As of right now 25 journalists and bloggers have been arrested. Its all just freakin’ nuts. I just really hope that I would have the courage to do the same thing if it came down to it.
