Useful #wikileaks articles

Wikileaks from Wikimedia CommonsI’ve pulled together a few articles I feel are useful discussions on Wikileaks.  Feel free to add more in comments.

Salon.com: The lawless Wild West attacks Wikileaks – useful summary of global response to pressure from US, in spite of Assange and Wikileaks never committing any crime. (Thanks @media140);

* Mark Pesce’s The Human Network: The Blueprint – hopeful assessment of the opportunities arising from a new age of open communication.  (Thanks @mpesce);

* Zunguzungu: Julian Assange and the Computer Conspiracy – fabulous assessment of Assange’s philosophy through discussion of his essays. (Thanks @theplayethic);

* Graham Moomaw: Journalism lessons from Wikileaks – entire history and value of wikileaks as an institution (published May 2010);

* Salon.com: Online, the censors are scoring the big wins – Dan Gillmor’s assessment of the journalism sector’s ‘soft underbelly’ (thanks Mathew Ingram);

* BusinessInsider.com: Wikileaks has given power to transparency – Buzzmachine’s Jeff Jarvis discussing the emerging reality of transparency;

* Crunchgear: Does Wikileaks represent the end of internet history? – useful articulation of the importance of wikileaks in the history of the net;

* TechCrunch: Wikileaks one true home is twitter but for how long? – discussion of concern about twitter intervening on trending terms and prospect of closure of the wikileaks twitter account;

* Tbray.org: Wikileaks – rather a good list of other links embedded in a run down of the complexities and responses to the issue.
