A story about making a difference
Egyptian bloggers recently decided to revolt against what they consider to be their country's "current rueful state." Nermeen Edrees, who writes for Global Voices, describes being haunted by "grim headlines" - stories about murders, corruption, sexual harassment, and other unsavory acts.
A group of Egyptian online writers, led by Tarek Amr, decided to turn the negatives into a positive by embarking on the "Change the Channel" campaign.
This is a great story about bloggers networking and affecting positive social change. Click here to read Nermeen's post. (The graphic, by the way, says "change the channel.")
