Re: <nettime> Utterly surreal: Pravda justifiably criticising US fortrying to stifle a free press How times change.

Astounding aggregation of incessant tweets to: Sign a petition.
And another. Run a mirror, run thousands. See a slew of pointers 
to flattering accounts and attacks by the powerful, none to revulsion

We Open Governments. Keep us strong!

Doesn't answer why Wikileaks and its bedmates are ever so

news report. A news report is lingua franca magnum opus.

As Important as the Freedom of Information Act: Keep us strong!

And the villainous redactions of "responsible" publishers. Gag, 
what has induced Wikileaks to sink to journalistic preen and 
prevarication about importance? 

Crush the bastards. Keep us strong!

Wormy Nixon screams, rescue me Dan, fight these fires. 
Kissinger cooly rakes in another million advising war criminals
unchallenged by Internet-evangelist brimstone spewings.

CIA Women Set Up. Keep us strong!

Keep us strong!
Keep us strong!
Keep us strong!

Did you hear about Phillip Adams, AU millionaire publicist
advising Wikileaks on maximizing impact of leaked material?
Here is an account: discussion blog about the ethical and technical issues
