Egypt. Where are the bloggers?

So I arrived in Cairo last night on my way to New Zealand. I have a few days to see some sights, eat some dates, and meet some bloggers.

Where are the bloggers here in Egypt?

– I would have liked to have coffee with Alaa Abd El Fattah, one of the bloggers at, but unfortunatelyhe is in prison. Egyptians are not happy about it, apparently. I would like to meet him and hear his story.

– Zeinobia blogs at EgyptianChronicles and has been focusing on the injustices in Syria.

– Wael Ghonim, creator of the “We are all Khaled Said” Facebook page that helped inspire the revolution, has moved to Dubai.

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
