[Commlist] Call for Chapter: Handbook of Research on Political Revolution and Activism in the Computer Age

Call for Chapters:  Handbook of Research on Political Revolution and

 Technology and particularly the Internet have brought about many changes
in the realm of politics.  Revolutions in many countries in the Middle
East and North Africa have started in large part due to social networking
websites like Facebook and Twitter.  Social networking has also played a
role in protests and riots in numerous countries.  The whistleblower
website Wikileaks has had a tremendous impact in exposing government
corruption.  The mainstream media no longer has a monopoly on political
commentary as anybody can set up a blog or post a video online.  Political
activists can network together online.  Aspects of engineering, computer
science, mathematics, or natural science can be applied to political
activism.  Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
