Check out this CNN article about Guy Philippe, who you might know as the leader of the rebellion in Haiti to take out current President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

It seems that Philippe uses his satellite-driven Internet connection from the Hotel Mont Joli in Cap-Haitien, Haiti to check out what the current plans are from countries like the U.S. and to gauge reactions through news sources.

Who knew. I think I’m glad Napoleon, Hannibal, and Alexander the Great didn’t have the Internet is some tent somewhere are they created empires, howabout you?
