    With an overall mobile subscription rate of 237%, there is no other place on earth quite like Hong Kong. That’s not a typo—on average there are more than two mobile subscriptions per person. It’s not unusual for a taxi cab driver to have at least three phones—one for work, one for family, and several for betting on horse racing. Hong Kongers are used to being connected, several times over.
    However, packing thousands of people shoulder to shoulder in a protest can overwhelm even the best mobile data networks. Cutting edge technologies such as peer-to-peer mesh networking allow phones to utilize Bluetooth and Wifi networking to message others in their immediate vicinity, without needing an Internet connection. FireChat is the most popular app of this type, and has seen a record 200,000 downloads in Hong Kong alone, putting powerful and scalable mass messaging on peoples’ handheld devices.
    Cyber shenanigans emerge

    The importance of mobile is perhaps why we have seen concerted efforts to compromise the distributed mobile citizenry through malicious software and “trojan horse” apps. In September, bogus messages purporting to be from trusted sources asked people to, “Check out this Android app designed by Code4HK for the coordination of OCCUPY CENTRAL!” Clicking the link resulted in eavesdropping malware being installed on the victim’s device. A version that infected iOS was also found to be in the wild, which could compromise “jailbroken”Apple devices. While there have not been reports of widespread infection, it does foreshadow significant cyber-skirmishes in the future, pitting the government against citizens in a battle of bits.

    Good stuff, let me know if Clearwater can do anything. This is what I like, through the lulz and trolling when comes down to it we are a force to reckoned with.

    Oh man. This is not good.

    "This is actually a beautiful necklace bought at Lane Crawford (yes- funded by all you HK taxpayers!! So are all my beautiful shoes and dresses and clutches!! Thank you so much!!!!) Actually maybe I shouldn't say 'all you'- since most of you here are probably unemployed hence have all this time obsessed with bombarding me with messages," the note said.
    The note also included shots at Leung's critics for their intelligence and ability to speak English.

    So what do you think? Is it possible to continue a protest too long? Maybe have a one-week street demonstration, then move on to other methods of protest?

    "Hong Kong's leader has warned protesters that police will take "all actions necessary" to ensure government offices and schools reopen on Monday.
    In a televised speech on Saturday, CY Leung called on demonstrators to allow the government and citizens to "resume their normal work and life".
    His comments came after street fights led to the postponement of talks between protesters and the government.
    Activists are angry at China's plans to vet candidates to replace Mr Leung.
    Protesters have been occupying parts of the city for just over a week to demand free elections in 2017.
    Speakers addressed a growing crowd in the city's business district on Saturday, and the BBC's Babita Sharma, in Hong Kong, says the anti-violence demonstration is one of the largest yet, with "tens of thousands" on the streets.
    Earlier this week, Chief Executive CY Leung offered talks to defuse the situation but they were postponed by protest groups after clashes on Friday."

    The last really serious society-changing protests here in the UK were the Winter of Discontent and the Miners' Strike, both of which went on for ages. Successful in causing disruption but not long-term successful in achieving their goals. FWIW.
