I'd be cautious about thinking that Mubarak will be unseated by this, though a more democratic Egypt will be a good thing in itself. One wishes, as well, that it would be by more peaceful means; not only because of the hurt and death here, but because an unstable Egypt will be just one more diplomatic egg we'll need to juggle in the Middle East. Things are tricky enough right now as they are.

As for the Egypt sim, I'm going in to visit right now.

Maybe it's better to NOT go there and leave that place to the Egyptians, since they appear not to have many other ways to communicate online right now.

I'm just hoping we don't see a replay of 1979 Tehran. There was a period, very short, of flexibility and possible democracy before the theocrats took over. I suspect we'll know in a few days.


FYI the owner of the sim has been warning people to not "abuse" Mubarak while they are there or risk being banned: http://www.betterverse.org/2011/02/owner-of-egypt-sim-in-second-life-bans-avatars-for-abusing-mubarak.html
