London Riots: Social Media To Blame?

Don’t call me an expert, these are just my rambling thoughts. With recent word of the authorities in GB wanting to lock down social networking sites, in much the same way that was seen in Egypt, is nothing new. I understand the need to reestablish order(why was it lost to begin with?) but curtailing our free speech is just asking for trouble. I’m not supporting their use of this technology to cause further damage, but like most anything, its a double edged sword. I hope they are wise enough to see that this new form of communication is more good then bad and will not restrict access simply because a situation turns tough.
