Fwoggie I'll start the ball rolling with a question. You're an Australian passport holder - would you want return to your own country or is this now out of the question due to potentially being arrested on arrival for releasing cables relating to Australian diplomats and polices? Julian Assange : I am an Australian citizen and I miss my country a great deal. However, during the last weeks the Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, and the attorney general, Robert McClelland, have made it clear that not only is my return is impossible but that they are actively working to assist the United States government in its attacks on myself and our people. This brings into question what does it mean to be an Australian citizen - does that mean anything at all? Or are we all to be treated like David Hicks at the first possible opportunity merely so that Australian politicians and diplomats can be invited to the best US embassy cocktail parties.
The State is a condition, a certain relationship between human beings, a mode of behavior; we destroy it by contracting other relationships, by behaving differently toward one another....We are the state, and we shall continue to be the state until we have created the institutions that form a real community and society of men. Gustav Landauer , Schwache Stattsmanner, Schwacheres Volk!, June, 1910 Wed 29 Aug 2007 : Iirrationality in argument The truth is not found on the page, but is a wayward sprite that bursts forth from the readers mind for reasons of its own. I once thought that the Truth was a set comprised of all the things that were true, and the big truth could be obtained by taking all its component propositions and evaluating them until nothing remained.
Sept remarques sur wikileaks . Première remarque : « single point of failure » dans l’architecture distribuée C’est peut-être la première fois que j’écris une note en me demandant comment je vais faire un lien vers l’organisation dont je parle, à savoir Wikileaks. Voilà le premier problème que pose wikileaks, site chassé du web par des hébergeurs, puis par le DNS qui apparaît comme single point of failure du web , une clé de voute du système trop centralisée pour susciter un intérêt renouvelé pour des DNS en p2p . Deuxième remarque : Une divulgation numérique de masse
décembre 4th, 2010 Posted in Parano Voilà, c’est fait, Wikileaks a effectivement entamé la diffusion des centaines de télégrammes diplomatiques qui lui ont été transmis et, comme prévu, on s’affole un peu partout.
Washington Embassy, People’s Republic of China, to Ministry of Foreign Affairs Beijing, TOP SECRET/Subject: America today. Things are going well here for China. America remains a deeply politically polarized country, which is certainly helpful for our goal of overtaking the U.S. as the world’s most powerful economy and nation. But we’re particularly optimistic because the Americans are polarized over all the wrong things.
