I am reading through this thing now, but the talk went for five hours, so there is quite a bit to dig through. I am about a half down, and I have to say that this is great stuff. There is plenty of thought-provoking discussion, ideas, examples, etc. I am marking it down for quotes, so expect another post in a day or two. I suggest you read the whole thing too though.
Who hasn’t heard the phrase “21st century is the age of information“? I think everybody heard it in this or that variation. Well, know that we have the context, let’s see what US Military thinks of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange:
The U.S. military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States — the same legal category as the al-Qaeda terrorist network and the Taliban insurgency. Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with ‘communicating with the enemy.’
