It would seem that the events in Tunisia have sparked a call to action across the Middle East, most recently in Egypt. There are also signs that Jordan may be the next to join the fray. While it is encouraging to see people seeking to oust the old guard in favor of something more akin to a democracy, my concern is that fringe elements may try to pander to the people’s need for change by injecting their questionable views into the mix in the hope that they may take root.

I hope that change does come to the region with little chaos, and heralds in an age of greater strides in technology, social reform, and entrepreneurship. I mean, the Arab world has given us a lot that we take for granted nowadays, so who knows what else may come from that region. It would be very cool to see what ideas come to the surface if they are given the chance to shine.
