Armed only with a laptop, a smartphone, and her determination, 19-year-old Ala'a Basatneh is contributing to the Syrian revolution from her Chicago bedroom. She orchestrates an impressive array of social media to coordinate and protect the Syrian protesters from President Bashar al-Assad's rule of terror. And while she is out of the regime's reach, there's no telling when the other shoe will drop.
