I thought this was really good information, so I thought I would put it here:

Communicate if Your Government Shuts Off Your Internet - Wired How-To Wiki

Scenario: Your government is displeased with the communication going on in your location and pulls the plug on your internet access, most likely by telling the major ISPs to turn off service.
This is what happened in Egypt Jan. 25 prompted by citizen protests, with sources estimating that the Egyptian government cut off approximately 88 percent of the country's internet access. What do you do without internet? Step 1: Stop crying in the corner. Then start taking steps to reconnect with your network. Here’s a list of things you can do to keep the communication flowing.

For your edification and enjoyment.

But an interesting article anyhow. I'm so glad they mentioned the phone.
