What are the chances that the same kind of Internet/social network savvy the opposition used to coordinate Mubarak's ouster will be used by whoever ends up in power in Egypt will use the same means to become entrenched & oppress the people? And that that situation will last until the next generation--both of technology & of people who know how to use it to oust *them*?

Could you please address the fact that there has always been a military man in charge of Egypt since the deposition of the King.
