Monroe E. Price, Director of the Annenberg School for Communication’s Center for Global Communication Studies, writes about a recent speech by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for The Huffington Post.  Professor Price, addressing the Internet’s role in civilian uprisings throughout the Middle East, said “This was a speech nominally about the Internet, but Secretary Clinton again and again talked about the power of people massing and demonstrating, not because of technology but merely aided by it. Brave individuals "stood and marched and chanted and the authorities tracked and blocked and arrested them. The Internet did not do any of these things; people did" (emphasis added).”
