What about those humans? On the edge of extinction, they still make history

Amazing how slowly the owl of Minerva flies and how long twilight lasts.

This is the best live coverage I can find:

As the Arab peoples rise up, Al Jazeera may well become a superpower in the media world, contending with BBC and CNN. Maybe the Anglo-American media cartel will finally lose its grip.

I've been disappointed at the Indian media's performance -- still under the tutelage of the Anglo world--- but perhaps eventually they will transfer some of the amazing intellectual ferment inside India onto the global scene.

Meanwhile, re: the French Revolution, still "too early to tell".
