^Thanks, for the shirtless,  Babypink. 

I thought there would be more of the same on his instagram, but, alas, no. Well, at least it is start. 

On the lookout for more shirtless pics of what promises to be a very sexy body.  :woot:

Q&A: Ahmed Shihab-Eldin on Media, Democracy and Social Change in the Middle East

Written by Aprille Muscara






In a region where repression, self-censorship and a rigid status quo are the norm, perhaps one of the best positioned voices to speak about the intersection of digital media, democracy and social change is that of Ahmed Shihab-Eldin


He has borne witness to both unashamed government control as well as revolutionary disruptive movements by citizens in Lebanon, Qatar, UAE, Egypt, Jordan and other locations in the West and the Arab world.

Here, he speaks to us about the state of media in the Middle East, from the unrelenting crackdown on journalists to the inspiring democratization of social media.
