Keep track on the twitters: #LuchaUPR.
Since yesterday, Professors have announced a strike in support of the students. Nice. And police presence is being maintained throughout the campus. Some news articles:

Need sources for Egyptian revolution?

Al Jazeera English, the Guardian and the NY Times all have live blogs (descending order of quality, IMO). Thanks, Xeni Jardin at BoingBoing!

Google unveiled a plan to allow Egyptians to tweet voicemails: Official Google Blog: Some weekend work that will (hopefully) enable more Egyptians to be heard. If you speak Arabic (all of the messages I listened to were in Arabic), search #egypt on twitter (though that will obviously get you lots more than just the voice tweets from Egypt), or go to speak2tweet.
