Google's Foreign Policy

(Source: Mashable)

Foreign Policy: The Digital Disruption: Governments will be caught off-guard when large numbers of their citizens, armed with virtually nothing but cell phones, take part in mini-rebellions that challenge their authority..... consumers who have little loyalty and no patience ..... Today, more than 50 percent of the world's population has access to some combination of cell phones (five billion users) and the Internet (two billion) ..... Whereas the traditional press is called the fourth estate, this space might be called the "interconnected estate" -- a place where any person with access to the Internet, regardless of living standard or nationality, is given a voice and the power to effect change.
