As I’ve done for more than ten weeks, I will be updating news and views on all things WikiLeaks all day, with new items added at the top. All times are ET in USA. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read about or order my new book, The Age of WikiLeaks: From Collateral Murder to Cablegate, here.
11:25 Another shocking leak released! Actually it’s just a little antifreeze or engine oil on the New York City pavement, shot by yours truly.
9:10 Fun piece by Rundle at Crikey about sneaking into Assange hearing today with "Wiki Kids" and Bianca Jagger. Good joke about guards asking John Burns to check his "hatchet" at the door, and then in truth Assange and Burns studiously avoiding each other on a lunch break.
9:00 Guardian editorial on their man Luke Harding getting the boot out of Russia (we had much on this earlier), probably due to WikiLeaks reporting.
7:15 New cable on Egypt — see #6c for great take on Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and the regime.
7:10 I’ve appreciated the dozens of letters and tweets I’ve gotten from people around the globe who say they want to order a copy of my new WikiLeaks book but find the shipping costs to some countries prohibitive (despite the low cover price of $11.95). Soon, tomorrow or Wednesday, they’ll be able to get it on Kindle or various Kindle apps for the web, iPad, Blackberry, Android and other places, for just $4.99. Print page still here. I’ll let you know when e-book avaiilable.
5:55 I’m told much-touted BBC Panorama show on WikiLeaks postponed tonite for Egypt show –simply more timely or too close to Assange hearing?
5:50 Andy Greenberg at Forbes tells us he corrected earlier link (which we carried) to the online store now sellng WikiLeaks items as fundraising tool fo group. Here, he says, is correct site.
5:15 Telegraph suggests new cables show Egypt’s Suleiman as Israel’s man in Cairo, with a "hot line" set up to chat with him, and Israelis viewing him as most likely to succeed Mubarak (as now seems possible).
