http://88.80.13.160/wiki/Wikileaks: The Battle is Real. The Outcome Uncertain

Excerpt from New York Times Article:
Web Site That Posts Leaked Material Ordered Shut
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/19/us/19cnd-wiki.html

In a move that legal experts said could present a major test of First Amendment rights in the Internet era, a federal judge in San Francisco on Friday ordered the disabling of a Web site devoted to disclosing confidential information.

MY COMMENT:

The battle is real. There are the folk who would free information for a more transparent world. There are also the folk that would make us transparent to them (and in some cases their subscribers) but who do not want the window to be un-tinted.

This is a real war. The future outcome uncertain. The battles visible every where.
