As I’ve done for more than thirteen 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 to early February, in print or an e-book.
UPDATE: Here’s the historic Day 100 edition of this blog.
* SUNDAY *
11:15 Kicking off the celebration of 100 days without a break for this blog: My look back at the day Cablegate was born.
9:25 Visit at your own risk: Yes, there’s a Hackers Lane in L.A. See pic.
7:50 The Telegraph with new cables, from couple years back, warning that eastern Libya with strong extremist, jihadi element vs. Gaddafi. Really not known how strong role playing today.
7:00 Aussie attorney: Threat of Assange extradition from Sweden to USA "real," despite image of groovy Swedes.
6:55 Useful review of the whole HBGary, BOA, WikiLeaks scandal. And "other tales from the dark side."
5:50 Sen. John Kerry defends treatment of Manning, although he’s glad it’s getting more study.
5:45 Profile in Sydney Morning Herald of the Icelandic journalist who might take over (they say) WikiLeaks if Assange no longer able. "At first blush, Hrafnsson, a softly-spoken, thin 48-year-old divorced father of two, appears the polar opposite of the publicity machine that is Assange. ”I’m rather old-school, you know; even though I’m in a broadcast journalism environment, I’ve never seen the journalist as, well, I think he should always strive to be in the background, not be the story.’ But when his conversation turns to the role of WikiLeaks and the impact it has had upon the press and governments around the world, he shows as much vision as the website’s Australian founder."
3:20 I will be marking the 100th day of this blog tomorrow, with a piece revisiting Day No. 1 (when the first cables were released), and more, and The Nation has a slide show planned. Of course, you can catch up on the first 60 days, and everything else WikiLeaks going back to last March, in my The Age of WikiLeaks book. Get it here in e-book form, and in print here.
