Egypt Blocks Internet Access

Forget blocking of youtube, facebook, twitter & other sites. For the first time in the internet history, Egypt has blocked access to internet except for the Egyptian stock exchange website which is still accessible. Tunisian style inspired revolution has been feared in Egypt & social networking sites help spread the information easily. Fearing it, Egypt seems to have blocked access to all the sites. SMS has also been blocked. This is for the first time it has happened in the world & shows the impact of internet on the economy & the society. Several important lines pass through Egypt & might also affect the global internet traffic.
