Internet secrets of the Pharaohs

The Egyptian government denies censorship and banning internet access.

Here's the graph for Egyptian internet activity for yesterday (click to enlarge):

Hope you're having a good day.

I read that this morning, so sad.

There are so many things we would not be able to do without the internet not only socially, but also in the workplace. Things would just fall apart for us really, it's scary.
