UPDATED: Go here for the Monday edition of this blog.
7:50 Love this story and headline: "Paranoia Meter: HBGary’s Plot to Find the Pentagon’s Next WikiLeaker." And so: "Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that HBGary won’t create a rootkit to record your keystrokes, read your email, and track where you move your mouse."
6:40 Excerpt from new book in Australia on Assange by Andrew Fowler, focusing on his early approaches to Ellsberg: “I didn’t get anything back and then I just put it out of my mind; I just didn’t think it would come to much,” he said. “I get a lot of nutty things, you know, in the mail, one way or another.”
6:30 NYT covers Chinese artist/activist Ai Weiwei now detained.
6:20 And now a word from our sponsor: My new book, Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences, just published as e-book here and print here. Remember, e-book nowadays also means phones, iPad, PC reading, etc. Plus, first excerpt from the book (“From Oklahoma to Baghdad to Prison”) right here.
6:00 Jack Balkin posted his must-read Hugo Black Lecture at his blog, see lengthy take on WikiLeaks and more.
