Talking to Cairo

Fathy Abou Hatab is an editor at Al Masry Al Youm. He is also a friend who worked for Meedan in our first year, before he was 'asked' by the state security to take a break from his journalism.

He has a satellite connection to the net and allowed me to record a conversation with him just now.

Our conversation took place just before Mubarak's speech to the nation.

Meedan has lost all but occasional phone contact with our team members in Egypt- Fathy has a satellite connection to the Internet and has been doing amazing work via Al Masry Al Youm site and their Facebook page as well.

Thoughts are with Egypt tonight.
