Links 27 July - August 4 2011

I was profiled a few days ago in Le Monde. Note that the story has an error: I was a co-founder of Cairo magazine, not of the Cairo Times (where I worked for several years after it was founded in 1997.)

A few links —  but neither the blog posting nor the links will go back to their regular schedule until late August, as I am on holiday and frequently traveling.
