CNN reports that internet outages in Egypt during this week's violent clashes have been "coordinated" and "extensive" and many think the government is behind them. MSNBC.com's Wilson Rothman examines what faces the Egyptian economy if internet access isn't restored by Monday. He also asks if access to the 'net is a human right. Within the past few hours, President Hosni Mubarek has announced that his government is resigning and that he will institute reforms.
