Endless Knots

Muslim Brotherhood: Internal and external networks

Net-Map Toolbox

Let’s say you map out the transition in Egypt: Is the Muslim Brotherhood one actor or many? If you looked at pre-Arab-Spring Egypt and wanted to map out the different political actors in the country, you would most likely be fine calling the Muslim Brotherhood one actor.

Watching the stream of thousands of tweets that (Andy) Carvin (0f NPR) produced during the uprising in Egypt was fascinating and compelling, but it was also overwhelming in terms of the sheer magnitude of data.” Mathew Ingram posed an interesting piece, No, Twitter Is Not a Replacement For Journalism , on Gigaom.    I have covered this topic a bit already.

A little wildness in us

Chris Corrigan

Whether it is the tourist in the forest who complains against the mud or the leader in an organization, community or country (like Egypt) who clings to the illusion of confidence and control and who cannot make friends with the wild and the chaotic. I see it all the time, where cultivated and well-raised people stumble in the wild land of chaos and open space.

Have I not delivered them from bondage in Egypt and offered them a land of milk and honey and share options set at a reasonable strike price? And this is the commission for Johnnie Moore. The process for this was just us nattering on Skype for half an hour. Or it is the hours of conversations and personal blog posts that we have had since we met in 2006. Which makes it either the simplest or most complicated in terms of development. Whatever.
