After news broke that Google executive Wael Ghonim is missing in Egypt, Twitter users have banned together to track those who are unaccounted for amid escalating protests in the country. After hearing the news about Ghonim, two people, one in Lebanon and another in Canada, have created a spreadsheet to crowd source information that could help them track down Ghonim and other missing persons.
"Although the spreadsheet has already been viewed nearly 10,000 times, simply accessing it is a challenge for most people in Egypt. The government cut off Internet access in the country late last week. Until Monday, Internet was available through a single ISP, Noor Group, but it was also yanked from the Web yesterday afternoon."
