A good documentary produced by Swedish public television on the history of WikiLeaks [via L. Lee Lowe].


These drawings show my progress, for what it's worth, over several days as I keep experimenting with Gimp. I've done a few drawings in colour more successfully than the first one above, but thought I'd include it as a sample of how much I was wrestling with the software at first (my version is in Korean, and its script is what appears to be sub-6 point type). Since then, I've focussed more on grey-scale art, though I'll go back to colour eventually.

The Guardian's WikiLeaks coverage.

A must-read from Reporters Without Borders.

WikiLeaks current site.

Incidentally, I've read several articles which quote Hillary Clinton, Mitch McConnell, Sarah Palin and others all state or strongly hint that what WikiLeaks did was illegal, and furthermore have read more than one reference in news wire stories to Assange and some of his colleagues as computer hackers. And corporations such as Amazon and Paypal have repeated the illegal activities accusation when justifying their hostile actions toward WikiLeaks. But I've yet to read an article that answers the simple question: were the American diplomatic cables the result of a leak? If so, where precisely was the illegality?
