<nettime> Wikileaks, anyone? http://tinyurl.com/d4kv4q


What's Wikileaks, if you haven't heard of it yet?

Wikipedia explains it thus: "Wikileaks is a website that publishes
anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive governmental, corporate,
or religious documents, while attempting to preserve the anonymity and
untraceability of its contributors. Within one year of its December
2006 launch, its database had grown to more than 1.2 million
documents.[1] Wikileaks runs on modified MediaWiki software."

Listen to Jacob Applebaum, giving a very brief introduction to this
amazing project ...

Some of its "notable" leaks are as follows:

 ÂBank Julius Baer lawsuit

 ÂGuantÃnamo Bay procedures

 ÂCongressional Research Service reports

Check out Wikileaks here: http://www.wikileaks.org/

And take this quote from Britannia Radio: "Wikileaks has released over
600 United Nations investigative reports, over 70 of which are
classified. The reports expose sensitive matters from allegations of
hundreds of European peace-keepers sexually abusing--and
impregnating--refugee girls, to generals in Peru using Swiss bank
accounts to engage in multi-million dollar procurement fraud."

Thanks to Jacob Appelbaum for putting this on the agenda! FN
