The Power of the Blog

A UC-Berkeley graduate student who was in Egypt to monitor anti-government protests was able to use the remote posting function of his blog to alert his family and friends of his arrest with a one word post. His blog allowed them to quickly obtain him with a lawyer who was able to secrue his release.

It's a great example of how blogs have become a part of the way we communicate and receive news, plus it's an interesting story.
