This weekend a video taken last October in Cairo of a 12-year-old boy describing the political changes in his country has gone viral, due to the power of Reddit. The Washington Post said that the video is “a concise introduction to one segment of the protesters, delivered by a delightfully passionate and improbably well-spoken boy who appears to grasp nuances that are way, way beyond his reading level.”


Ok, the WashPo didn’t have to sound so elitist about the boy, but you get the picture. Here is the video.

Meanwhile, the situation in Egypt continues to develop. This live blog from Al Jazeera is providing some very comprehensive coverage.
Another video posted yesterday offers another perspective.
