Another side to democracy via technology

With all the uprisings kicking off in the Middle East there has been a huge spotlight placed on the power of technology in helping drive this democratic shift in a number of nations. I found this video from Noam Chomsky really interesting.

But what about the other side of the coin. What about the governments and dictators that are actually using the technology for their own drive. using crowd sourcing to scare people into submission.
