#TUNISIA #WIKILEAKS #socialmedia #twitrev ~ Twitter revolution and the new Arab Media Space?



Tunisia and the New Arab Media Space
Marc Lynch, Foreign Policy, 15 Jan 2011


Tunisia: Can We Please Stop Talking About ‘Twitter Revolutions’
Luke Allnutt, Tanglered Web blog, 15 Jan 2011




The WDIK column
Twitter is proving to be important. It wouldn’t be so important if there were no mobile feeds into the system.

The Tunisian authorities, it is reported, had the Internet as tight as a gnats bottom – as China has. Though the news is that just before he flew the coop to Malta/France/Saudi Arabia (probably right now sitting down by the poolside with an ice-cool Carlesberg, evoking for me the iconic Heinekin scene at the end of Ice Cold in Alex…oh, perhaps not, it’s a dry country),



Internet Ali removed some of the filters. Or – as we’ll learn sooner than later – the current regime did, in order to reduce the pressure.

wiki:Virtual Private networks (VPN)


From http://fengnet.com/book/icuna/ch11lev1sec12.html:


There are several different places where encryption can be built in to an existing network infrastructure, corresponding to the different protocol layers:

1. On the network level— Packets traveling between hosts on the network are encrypted. The encryption engine is placed near the driver, which sends and receives packets. An implementation is found in CIPE.
2. On the socket level— A logical connection between programs running on different hosts (TCP connection; transport or session layer in OSI) is encrypted. The encryption engine intercepts or proxies connections. SSH and SSL work this way.
3. On the application level— Applications contain their own encryption engine and encrypt data themselves. The best-known example is PGP for encrypting mail.
