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, just updated, in print or as e-book.
UPDATE Monday’s edition here.
* SUNDAY *
9:00 InfoWorld: 2011 as the year “hacking” goes mainstream. Hack or be hacked.
8:40 @WikiLeaks tweets: “Almost all the important arguments for and against WikiLeaks are in the comments to this blog post at FAS http://is.gd/aMQeDZ .”
8:35 As noted earlier, in answer to many requests, you can now order my new and updated The Age of WikiLeaks book not only in print but for Kindle, iPad, Blackberry, Android, web viewing, for only $4.99. And print version still here. Hailed by Dan Ellsberg, Glenn Greenwald and others.
8:30 Four Corners program says White House trying to “break” Bradley Manning to implicate Assange. David House on Manning and “torture.” Also covers alleged “internal” debate at WikiLeaks over publishing the cables, as it might hurt Manning’s legal chances. Not sure if any of this is new.
8:20 Assange’s mum says U.S. has a “fatwa” out against her son — and he has all kinds of “ticks” on his back, whatever that means.
7:00 London’s The Independent looks at Guardian and Assange — and is critical of both.
4:15 BBC covers Guardian‘s Luke Harding’s return to Moscow (we had reported below).
2:45 Radio/podcast interview with me just posted, via David Alpern, who ran Newsweek On Line for many years (I’ve done interviews related to my books with him for almost 20 years). He now captains “For Your Ears Only,” and you can check out the entire show here, with my segment (starting with Huff Post, closes with WikiLeaks) starting at 27:55.
1:45 New tweet from Luke Harding of The Guardian, who got the boot from Russia last week (maybe partly WikiLeaks related): lukeharding1968 “Yes, I’m back in Moscow. “
