Kidnapped Google Engineer Thanks Zuckerberg, Says Egypt Revolution 'Started on Facebook'

Wael GhonimWael Ghonim, the Google engineer who was kidnapped and eventually released by the Egyptian regime, would apparently like to thank Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for making the revolution possible. "I want to meet Mark Zuckerberg one day and thank him," Ghonim told CNN, adding, quite humbly, that he was speaking "on behalf of Egypt." "This revolution started online," said the engineer who, it should be noted, earns his living off of the Interent. "This revolution started on Facebook."
