The Hacker Spirit Alive in Lybia..."How Libya’s Rebels Got Their Cell Service Back"

This is so very cool!

"The rebels effectively stole the Libyana cellphone network, which services over 2 million Libyans, out from under a Tripoli-based corporation run by one of the dictator’s sons. Their sponsors trucked telecom equipment across the Egyptian border and set up new infrastructure, allegedly thanks to the Emirati communications company Etisalat, and stole a database of phone numbers from Libyana so its customers could make and receive calls on the new “Free Libyana” network."
