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.

I'm fairly sure that was a mixup on Time's part. The "5 reasons" article and the photo gallery were posted yesterday. The gallery was subsequently updated with the bloody photos today. New links from other time articles to that photo gallery include warnings about graphic photos. The old article doesn't have the same because the original gallery wasn't particularly graphic.

Thanks for the information. Considering that, even though they could have been a little bit more careful, I have to admit they're hardly as bad as I thought at first.

Looks like a fair mistake, nothing more, then.
