Now Bambuser's Live Streaming Mobile Video Of Protests Is Blocked In Egypt

Well, so far the authoritarian regime in Egypt has taken steps to crack down on the uprising of its population by shutting down first Twitter and now Facebook, and thus useful parts of the movement’s ability to organise itself. No-one is suggesting that these this are essential to the people in the ground, but they certainly can’t hurt.

Now the government is taking steps to shut down web video services, and one of them is the live mobile video startup Bambuser. The company has now confirmed in a blog post that the service was shut down yesterday.
