Modern Revolution with Wael Ghonim

Wael Ghonim is not your typical bloody knuckled revolutionary; he's a computer engineer and he works for Google. In the context of protests against the Egyptian regime last year, however, Ghonim's tech tendencies were precisely the means necessary. He'll be discussing his new memoir, Revolution 2.0, in the next Trib Nation Printers Row Live event on February 4. The book describes Ghonim's role as an online activist and his urge, even on the front lines, to rush to Facebook and update the digital audience. Catch Ghonim at the Art Institute of Chicago at 111 S. Michigan Ave. at 3 P.M. on February 4. Entry costs $15.
