Wikileaks

This is amazing! Wikileaks is a place on the internet made to share critical infomation, documents and analysis.

In the spirit of the Wiki.  Here’s their own definition:

“Wikileaks is developing an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. Our primary interests are oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to those in the west who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their own governments and corporations. We aim for maximum political impact; this means our interface is identical to Wikipedia and usable by non-technical people. We have received over 1.2 million documents so far from dissident communities and anonymous sources”

  1. How do you check whether the information in the leaked documents are valid? People will go to all sorts of extremes in order to get even with someone they have a disagreement with. This includes lying and cheating.

  2. I agree with Mads. This is a really difficult area to access. But it is interesting. Movies as The Pelican memo will never be the same again : )
