More and more, the trend of entrepreneurship is picking up in Egypt and the region and the continent+ACE?? Usually the forces that control use mainstream trends to increase their share of the pie, and this is usually how these trends make it to the mainstream.?? It is the devices under the control of those at the top that propel shitty music or [...]
One year has passed, and I do indeed miss my friend.
During Eid, Bassita and I booked a spontaneous trip to Addis just days before, I have a few comments.
1. Don+ACYAIw-8217+ADs-t take a cab from airport.
My usual traveling habits kicked up upon arrival, and it was immediately evident that this poor nation had an informal system to maximize profit from the tourism sector. Bu [...]
Su Zee writes a powerful article explaining the recent street art that appeared on the walls of the Armenian Church last week in Downtown Cairo.
Note that this wall is similar to the famous Mohamed Mahmoud street in that it has been a gallery over the past 2 years of art reflecting socio political sentiment of revolutionaries in Egypt.
We want Egyptians to make use of icecairo, so you gonna hear a lot more of me in Arabic, and maybe one day I won’t get away with telling people I am from West China, and that’s why I have an accent. (works now all the time)
So I make it back down to Deep South after the debacle of Dec. 2010.?? I was officially kicked out of the region after what I did down there.?? But make no mistake, I have no regrets, one of the best dives of my life.

Arguably one of t [...]
So I get an email from May Al Hassan back in Fall 2011 to see if I wanted to write a chapter in this book.?? She said Ahmed Shehab el Din from The Stream??he and were publishing it.?? I figured why not, I was going to write a book myself about the Syrian Party, so here+ACYAIw-8217+ADs-s a chance to get the story out.
I had already started the blog just [...]
Some quick rambling here+ACYAIw-8230+ADs
The events of the past year have shown us that the Muslim Brotherhood do not intend to work with anyone else in post-revolutionary Egypt.?? Since they sat with Omar Suleiman in the first 18 days of the revolution, their hunger for power superseded any real change as demands of the revolution were bargained with [...]
Last night Morsy+ACYAIw-8217+ADs-s big surprise speech, the one where he told all the Muslim Brothers to head to the street, just made him the dictator of Egypt.
He decreed the following:
Constituent Assembly stays, will not, cannot be dissolved+ACYAIw-8230+ADs-according to him

Prosecutor General removed from off [...]
