Wikileaks - follow up

The past week or so has been quite interesting and seems this pending issue will not simply "go away", at least not that easily. I have gathered a few interesting links about what's up and down, I will try to update this.. (there are so many pages about this it's out of control).


Internet Protests

Anon sites/channels (many down)

A few Anonymous channels have been taken down, there are plenty of others coming up, going down, moving around etc..

Some people have been deleting their Paypal accounts and leaving a comments about how they feel.



I think this shows that there is a new kind of politics going on, and that the very structure of the internet is not that democratic as people think it is. I mean, this is not really new to geeks & nerds, however, it may have occured to all kinds of people by now. well, at least i hope it did.

closing one's paypal account is easy, so everybody can do it to show their discontent. I am still asking myself it paypal's action is self-censorship or if this is something that has been asked for at some point by higher officials?

then again, in the end, what i find quite surprising is that the leaked cables did more damage and had more bad consequences than had any of the information wikileaks had revealed before about the war in afghanistan...
