An Egyptian blogger crosses red lines

When the Gulf War broke out in 1990, the world watched the horrors of conflict on live television. It caused a massive leap in media. When the Internet became widely accessible later that decade, the exchange of information in a single second signaled the dawn of another new age. News not only proliferated, it could be seen by anyone with online access. At the start of the new millennium, blogs became an easy and open way for anyone to write free of restrictions or censorship, about any topic of interest, be it personal, technical, economic, politically oppositional, or in support of a specific cause.
