How Social Media Accelerated the Uprising in Egypt

How Social Media Accelerated the Uprising in Egypt | Social Storytelling | Scoop.it
There’s been some backlash in the last few days against the idea that either Tunisia or Egypt were brought on by Twitter or a “Facebook Revolution.” And certainly, it takes a lot more than the 21st century version of a communication system to persuade people to take to the streets and risk harm, imprisonment, or death.

Will eBay reveal street artist Banksy’s secret identity?

Will eBay reveal street artist Banksy’s secret identity? | Social Storytelling | Scoop.it
Everything's for sale.

Quick background on Banksy (from article): "Banksy is the pseudonym for a British street artist known for painting traditionally satirical and black humor paintings on the walls of buildings across the world. The artwork relies on a stencil-like style and has become a bit of a cult phenomenon, even spurring the creators of the Simpsons to commission an opening couch gag from the eccentric artist."

Banksy's not a fan of auctioneers of his art, but one particularly clever eBay user, Jaybuysthings, claims he learned Banksy’s identity by matching the prices of his artwork with tax records. And he's selling the knowledge to the highest bidder.

The legend surrounding Banksy is so great, and the desire to unmask him so strong, that the auction's already generated 38 bids for a current going rate of $999,999.00.

(This kind of reminds me of the "refurbished virgins" on eBay whose prices would skyrocket until the company eventually pulled their auctions. But I'm not sure how likely it is to pull the plug on this one, given that it's data, not sex, for sale. Can you demand a refund if the data is counterfeit, or does that only apply to LV bags...?)
