Worrying what's going to happen in Egypt today. Still think that, without anybody for Mubarak to talk to, it's most likely to end in a really nasty way.

Some people have been suggesting phoning random Egyptian numbers with encouragement. There's something appealing about that, however much it smells of "let's you and him fight". I suspect I'd only do it if I had some longstanding connection with Egypt, but then I'm not a big fan of the phone in the first place

Other than that, I imagine the only useful thing to do is bug our own politicians. Ideally, asking them for something concrete -- like threatening specific responses if Mubarak starts seriously shooting people later today.

Anybody else have smarter ideas? Since I imagine any spare attention I have tomorrow will float towards Egypt anyway, I may as well try to do something semi-useful with it.
