I think the biggest problem WikiLeaks has that it requires 
an organisation, with need for centralized servers to publish
what would have been much better done in a globally distributed
cryptographic system run by a network of volunteers.

It's pretty obvious that something like user-run Tahoe 

http://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs

(with synergies from I2P2, Tor and Freenet) would 
be much, much more difficult to shut down or its operators to harass
nor would it require an operational budget via a central
organisation.

With access gateways it would not even require software
installation, further removing access threshold for nontechnical
users.
