Web 2.0 Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr. All demon spawn from Web 2.0, and we all love to make fun of these websites and the services they provide. However, here in the West, where everything is at arm's length and democracy is something we do not remember fighting for, it's easy to forget that what looks silly and useless to us, can be of the utmost importance somewhere else in the world. Update: I've been informed that the first casualty has fallen at the hands of armed government supporters. Hundreds of thousands of people are now on the streets all over Iran. More updates inside.

TBH, this is the first piece on osnews that has interested me in a few weeks. Also, I think the article is balanced and well written.

Only thing left out: go to search.twitter.com and search for #iranelection to follow twitter coverage.

It's in there, under the "Twitter" link. Thanks though, because some might've missed it.
