After six solid days of live-blogging the latest WikiLeaks news and views we are taking a much-needed "rest" this weekend, or at least reducing the coverage somewhat. See items below and frequent tweets here. UPDATE: Here’s Monday’s edition.
10:50 They are Spartacus: the number of WikiLeaks mirror sites now up to 355:
10:30 WikiLeak tweets: "Sarah Palin says Julian should be hunted down like Osama bin Laden—so he should be safe for at least a decade."
10:10 Jay Rosen post on WIkileaks, with good links, worth a read—from last July. And a new Jeff Jarvis post at Huff Post: "For today, in the internet age, power shifts from those who hold secrets to those who create openness. That is our emerging reality. Business, be warned: You are next."
7:50 WikiLeaks tweets URL for list of new servers for their material.
7:40 For your amusement: an intern wrote about working secretly for WIkiLeaks in London, on the "ramshackle" office and "sexy" dude Julian Assange, who had a grey wig at the ready. Published in Oxford U magazine and the London Times.
7:00 Tonight on Sarah Palin’s Alaska, Sarah shoots Julian Assange from a helicopter.
6:00 Assange ups ante—now says OBAMA (as well as Hillary) must resign if ordered spying at UN. Julian, don’t hold your breath in that bunker.
4:30 AP: Supporters claim Assange may seek asylum in Switzerland.
3:40 New John Bolton piece at the Guardian on WikiLeaks naturally attacks Obama above all.
2:55 New from the Guardian: cables claim Al-Jazeera is not independent journo outlet, with more embarrassement for Qatar.
2:45 This probe of Assange’s rape accusers getting a lot of traffic, I cannot comment beyond that.
