Para entender porque o WikiLeaks cheira mal: a diferença que faz o ontem e o agora. Tem sido um frenesim dos antigos.
Os resultados do teste: chumbo (quase) redondo. Rui Tavares tem abordado, nas suas crónicas no jornal “Público” - normalmente ricas, concorde-se ou não com tudo o que defende – a questão Wikileaks.
Essas crónicas podem , depois, ser lidas no seu blogue. Como tese geral, destaco que considera que a divulgação de documentos levada a cabo por aquela organização é positiva (muito positiva, até), enquadrando-a na liberdade de expressão e na concretização do princípio fundamental de que o segredo nunca pode ser a regra, mas a excepção. A liberdade na Internet só interessa para chatear o chinês. Um senhor simpático chamado Pedro Sales escreveu naquela coisa chamada Twitter: a não perder: Hilary Clinton, na China, defende a liberdade de informação na net como forma escrutínio dos governos: Dizia a senhora Clinton, em Janeiro deste ano (os negritos são da minha responsabilidade): During his visit to China in November, President Obama held a town hall meeting with an online component to highlight the importance of the internet.
In response to a question that was sent in over the internet, he defended the right of people to freely access information, and said that the more freely information flows, the stronger societies become.

By David EdwardsMonday, December 6, 2010 15:43 EDT One of the women accusing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of sex crimes appears to have worked with a group that has connections to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
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. 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. After Wikileaks: The Promise of Internet Freedom, For Real. The conflict between Wikileaks and the U.S.
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. 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.
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.

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.
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 Army Won't Be Safe for Homoeroticism If It Lets In Gays. This is a new one.
The military has to ban gays so that its soldiers can indulge in homoeroticism, The Daily Beast's Brendan Tapley writes. In every other social setting, men are straight-jacketed in their relationships with each other, unable to form the bonds that only 100 years ago were proudly celebrated as love. "Paradoxical though it may sound," Tapley writes, Don't Ask Don't Tell "actually ensures is that men still have a place to experience male-male intimacy without being called gay. " When homosexuality became more open, "it became masculinity's foil, its antithesis," and "fraternization was now equated with gayness," Tapley writes. Men fear being labeled effeminate if they get too close to other men. De quando uma pergunta simples se torna numa complexidade de intolerância. De Tiago Santos a 07.12.2010 às 05:24 Cara Palmira...
