Still don’t have things working very well around the website, and I know for a fact that the RSS feed is broken. Anyone feel like making some money converting the whole website to WordPress? I don’t have the time, but that seems like the simplest way to get things back to normal around here.
- Glenn Greenwald takes a look at The war on WikiLeaks and why it matters. The asymmetry of information that big government (and big business) rely on isn’t necessarily so good for citizens. That’s why Wikileaks is important, and why Iceland is looking at new laws protecting whistle-blowers.
