Egypt goes off the grid

Mubarek's dictatorship is off the grid in a manner of speaking. In order to maintain what appears for now to be an increasingly tenuous hold on power, the regime has ordered its major ISPs to kill all international Internet connections.

As an aside, The Guardian has had some decent coverage of events in Egypt and elsewhere around the region.

Update (1/30): Boing Boing has a good compendium of online resources for news on the developments in Egypt.
