Revealed: Assange ‘rape’ accuser linked to notorious CIA operative

James D. Catlin, a lawyer who recently represented Assange, said the sex assault investigation into the WikiLeaks founder is based on claims he didn’t use condoms during sex with two Swedish women. Swedish prosecutors told AOL News last week that Assange was not wanted for rape as has been reported, but for something called “sex by surprise” or “unexpected sex.” O nosso teste.

“Vastos ataques por parte de uma China que tem medo da internet”. Este era o título do New York Times na passada sexta-feira. No seu contexto, vale tudo o que se tem dito nos últimos dias sobre a wikileaks, cujos documentos — ironicamente — o New York Times usava para narrar a repressão chinesa, em 2009, contra o google.

After Wikileaks: The Promise of Internet Freedom, For Real

Government reminds me of something we've been experiencing for some years now in the private sector of corporate activity and social enterprises. Lots of hierarchical, top-down, closed fortress organizations have been discovering that they need to open up, accept that the internet is dispersing power to the edges and into the hands of free agents, a.k.a. the people who used to be their audience. Library of Congress Blinds Hill's Researchers to Wikileaks. If a big takeaway from l'affair Wikileaks is that there's tremendous power in the networked world's ability to ripple out information, Steven Aftergood has a story on the flip-side of that power. Decisions about who gets to see what online can be more impactful than they might first look just because the way we get information these days is so integrated. The Library of Congress, it was reported last week, quickly moved to block Wikileaks in-house.

One ripple effect? That means that researchers inside the Congressional Research Office, the Hill's research wing, are finding that they're cut off from the site too, and thus unable to make Congress smarter about what it is that Wikileaks is up to. Aftergood reports: “It’s a difficult situation,” said one CRS analyst. In fact, if CRS is “Congress’s brain,” then the new access restrictions could mean a partial lobotomy. Break the network, and the network breaks. Wikileaks Now Has Over 500 Mirrors. As of this morning, Wikileaks had over 500 mirrors around the world, and is providing visitors with step-by-step instructions on how to create new mirrors.

Wikileaks Now Has Over 500 Mirrors

The instructions ask would-be hosts set up an account for Wikileaks on their web host, set aside some space, and fill out a web form with all the info the Wikileaks staff would need to know in order to log in and set up a mirror. Wikileaks staff would then log in and set up a mirror of its site, including, presumably, the over 250,000 leaked, (formerly) secret U.S. diplomatic communications it has slowly been releasing since Nov. 28 in cooperation with news organizations around the world. The call to create mirrors for Wikileaks came after Wikileaks' free domain name service provider, EveryDNS, for fear of the heat that would surely come with being part of the infrastructure for such controversial information, stopped providing service to the organization last week. WikiLeaks Ready to Release Giant 'Insurance' File if Shut Down. Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, has circulated across the internet an encrypted “poison pill” cache of uncensored documents suspected to include files on BP and Guantanamo Bay.

WikiLeaks Ready to Release Giant 'Insurance' File if Shut Down

One of the files identified this weekend by The Sunday Times — called the “insurance” file — has been downloaded from the WikiLeaks website by tens of thousands of supporters, from America to Australia. Assange warns that any government that tries to curtail his activities risks triggering a new deluge of state and commercial secrets. The military papers on Guantanamo Bay, yet to be published, have been supplied by Bradley Manning, Assange’s primary source until his arrest in May. Other documents that Assange is confirmed to possess include an aerial video of a U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan that killed civilians, BP files and Bank of America documents. One of the key files available for download — named insurance.aes256 — appears to be encrypted with a 256-digit key. The U.S. Um tratado sobre o jornalismo português numa página do Google News.

De Tiago Santos a 07.12.2010 às 05:24 Cara Palmira... Acho que já esta embrenhada demais nos seus argumentos e não está a atingir aquilo que estão a criticar neles exactamente. A questão é que chegou-se a uma altura em que qualquer pessoa parece estar a entrar no ponto de desistir de debater o que quer que seja consigo. Todos os dias venho a este blogue e fico com a impressão que não vale a pena comentar porque é apenas mais um comentário em saco roto porque eu pareço estar, por definição, errado. Há muitas correntes na Igreja.
