As we wrap up our week here at Canonball, our thoughts and well-wishes go out to our contributors – and friends! – in Cairo, who we’ve been unable to communicate with since the Egyptian government blocked nearly all of the country’s Internet access Thursday night. We’ll be writing about the protests next week, but until then, we recommend keeping up with the news across Egypt by watching live video coverage from Al Jazeera English and reading updates from The Guardian‘s live blog. On Twitter, search for #Egypt and #Jan25.

As always, we’ll be on Twitter too. And if you’d like to get in touch (perhaps there’s a post you just can’t wait to contribute – new writers are always welcome!), send us an e-mail. Have a safe weekend, all.
