I am so excited by Egypt’s peaceful revolution. It is amazing to see what people can accomplish with great communications technologies. My taxi driver told me that he had escaped from Burma, and today he was jumping out of his seat on the hope that Burma might follow suit. Twitter, Hotmail, Skype, Facebook, Meebo…you are heroes!!! The world is a more peaceful, open, free and happy place because of you. Keep innovating. We still have a few totalitarian regimes to overthrow.

All this communication will make countries realize that they are in competition for the entrepreneurs and the capital of the world. Governments used to rule and control, now they have to sell and encourage people to work and live in their country. The USA needs to heed this call too.

Viva la revolution.
