Wael Ghonim brings us inside the Egyptian revolution with this TED talk

Wael Ghonim at TEDxCairo
Wael Ghonim tells the story of Egypt's uprising in this TEDxCairo talk. Ghonim is the Google executive that helped fan the fire in Cairo that led to President Hosni Mubarak's resignation by organizing the Facebook fanpage We are All Khaled Said. Ghonim had also been running a Facebook fanpage for Egyption Nobel Prize winner and opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei. For his actions he was held by the government; his last tweet before detainment is haunting.
