In case you hadn’t heard, Egyptians faced punitive power outages during their uprising. But that didn’t stop anybody. Rather than backing down or obeying the commands that would get power turned back on, they rigged up power strips like these to various street lights. My heart sung when I heard that story–and seeing it–I have a full on Computer Geek Media Justice Tearful Meltdown.
Us media folk always know a way. Somebody can always figure it out.
I love Egyptians.
And I love us all.
this is beyond awesome.
