The cradle of civilization?

 From Wired Magazine:

Mobile-phone texting, Blackberry messaging and internet service are suffering a major outage in Egypt as tens of thousands of protesters demonstrated across the country to demand the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in what was billed as a “Friday of Wrath.”

Vodafone said mobile operators in Egypt had been instructed to suspend services in selected areas, internet access was blocked shortly after midnight and mobile phone and text messaging services also appeared to be disabled or working sporadically, Reuters reported.
