<nettime> Politiken hosts Cablegate documents on Amazon's cloud infrastructure

dit hadden we natuurlijk zelf moeten bedenken :)

Prominent Danish newspaper Politiken has joined Owni and Libération as  
one of the major media organizations to officially mirror WikiLeaks.  
Politiken is mirroring the curently released Cablegate documents here.

In an interesting twist, the Danish Computer World site reports that  
Politiken's WikiLeaks mirror is currently hosted on Amazon's cloud  
infrastructure. Per Palmkvist Knudsen, CIO at the JP / Politiken Hus  
media group, said that there was no political statement behind it,  
Amazon being selected only on the basis on its service. "Amazon was  
fast and easy. But I can see that it would be a great story, if we  
were expelled from Amazon's services again, although that's not our  
intention," he added "with a wry smile," reports Computer World.
