Week 13 Question

The articles by Zhou, et al. and Kinsman both describe uprisings, especially in the Middle East. Additionally, both articles discuss the potential impact of these technologies. In each case, the importance of these social technologies in causing or advancing the protests or uprisings. Both articles describe how the amount of actual Internet users and people who find out about news through information technologies. A major impact in these uprisings was demonstrated when they took away these technologies, causing the protests to escalate. With technology becoming more evasive, do you think the technological sources or the government responses to them will have a bigger impact on the uprisings or protests?
