"The successful use of social media and the internet to obtain political objectives and build organizational and fund-raising capability actually began with the Ron Paul for President Campaign in 2008. More recently it was utilized to some benefit by Iranian dissidents and later in Tunisia. The battle is ongoing in Egypt but I suggest that this new people power movement in politics using electronic media will spread far from the Middle East. I see it threatening oligarchies and corrupt political elites from Africa, to Asia, China, Russia, Europe, South America and even to the United States."
