No one can deny that services like Bambuser have played an important role in the Egyptian uprising, as tools used by citizen journalists and activists to broadcast scenes from the heart of Tahrir, and other cities around the country, as they are happening. Through the Sweden-based service, we have witnessed not only the brutal violence used to quash the protests, but have also watched as activists record their own arrests, unbeknownst to their captors. While YouTube has of course seen countless videos shared with the world, Bambuser’s live-streaming feature has ensured that protesters were, and still are, able to broadcast events as they occur.
