As Egyptians celebrated in the streets of Cairo, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer posed a question to activist Wael Ghonim: “First Tunisia, now Egypt, what’s next? ”

Ghonim, a 30-year-old Google executive who became the symbol of the country’s democratic uprising against Hosni Mubarak’s authoritarian regime, replied with two words: “Ask Facebook.”

“I want to meet [Facebook founder] Mark Zuckerberg one day and thank him, actually,” Ghonim said.
