A great discussion on the future of info-technology and the will to control it

Open discussion on the emergent importance of social media, anonymous leaks, and the battle for governments to dilute them with "analysts."
It's definitely worth the watch or just a skim; alternative media 4tw.
Also I'm planning on putting up a news editorial channel soon.  D:


  1. I skimmed this video but I'll save it to watch later. It looks really interesting.

  2. I have a lot to say about this topic on both the good and bad, but to shorten up my opinion. I think that these sites like wikileaks are a great way to make governments think twice about their actions; however, it risks not only a government, but sometimes it's civilians as well. Great post!

  3. Undeclared wars in sovereign nations causes US civilian endangerment, since we tend to kill civilians with our sit back and launch missiles approach. This discussion pointed out that Wiki-leaks released the cables to the US gov before a public release asking the gov if there was anything they wanted redacted(names etc), and they failed to respond to several attempts. So they flat out info bombed the net, its worthy to speculate that this is the large reason the middle east is in turmoil and uprising after just a glimpse of the injustices. RANT MODE COMPLETE :D
