"Our Revolution is like Wikipedia"

Wael Ghonim, the Google executive behind We are All Khaled Said, comes up with a suitanly techie metaphor:
Our revolution is like Wikipedia, okay? Everyone is contributing content, [but] you don't know the names of the people contributing the content. This is exactly what happened. Revolution 2.0 in Egypt was exactly the same. Everyone contributing small pieces, bits and pieces. We drew this whole picture of a revolution. And no one is the hero in that picture.
