3:30 The estimable Andy Greenberg at Forbes on how Anonymous hackery could end up hurting WikiLeaks. "But if Anonymous has won a battle against those who want WikiLeaks destroyed, it might not have helped WikiLeaks in its other fight: the one for hearts and minds. Simply having Anonymous on its side may be contaminating WikiLeaks’ reputation at a moment when it most needs legitimacy."
