Mubarak stepped down less than 24 hours after he said he wouldn't. The military is in control now, it seems.

Fascinating to watch the whole Middle East unraveling.

Somebody calculated an "Uprising Index"--
Unrest more likely if:

1. Population average age under 25 yr
2. High unemployment
3. Repressive government
4. High number of cell phones
5. Low level of education
