There's a saying that one man with an idea is a madman. But a thousand with an idea is a movement. Is that what's going on in Egypt right now? A movement? Or is it simply "chaos"? Wait a minute, I can't think of a revolution that wasn't chaotic? Can you?
The truth is, I don't really know what's happening there. I'm watching the sound bytes and reading the New York Times. I'm also keeping an eye on Tweetdeck, but the tweets are pouring in faster than even Evelyn Wood can read.
Something is happening. That's for sure. But maybe we should hold off labeling it as "chaos". Because sticks and stones might not break any bones. But words can influence outcomes.
