Iran/Little Brother

I recently finished the audiobook of Doctorow's Little Brother, so I just wanted to post this link from The Daily Beast called "How Iran's Hackers Killed Big Brother" (via GalleyCat). Lots of great real-life parallels between the book and what's going on in Iran right now: using social networking to coordinate rallies, exploiting proxy servers to subvert government attempts at blocking access, crashing government servers, etc.
