Wikileaks, continued

I continue to be fascinated by this. Is WikiLeaks a good guy or a bad guy? I don’t know how I feel yet, so I continue to read. Here are more articles that have impressed me:

From Jeremy Wagstaff’s Loose Wire Blog:

“Asked why he chose to work with three major news outlets to release the Afghan data, he said it was the only way to get heard. He pointed out that he’d put out masses of interesting leaks on spending on the Afghan war previously and hardly a single journalist had picked it up.

Hence the — inspired — notion of creating a bit of noise around the material this time around. After all, any journalist can tell you the value of the material is less intrinsic than extrinsic: Who else is looking for it, who else has got it, and if so can we publish it before them.” (from Loose Wire Blog)
