I am struck by how actively platforms like Facebook, YouTube and
Twitter are being used inside and outside of Iran. So much so, in fact,
that Twitter had one of their infrastructure service providers postpone
a outage to maximize access to the service by the people of Iran. (The
outage is now scheduled for 1:30 am in Iran: middle of the afternoon in
the U.S.). 

Like Obama did during the election and afterward, Iranians are doing
many things, including changing how people perceive social networks.
