Wikileaks is turning out to be a profoundly interesting phenomenon. The questions it raises about communication in the age of the internet, particularly in the context of an ever-weakening U.S. empire, are so new and so complex that people and organizations who normally don't have too much difficulty figuring out what side of a problem they are on, are scrambling for purchase on unsure ground.
Geert Lovink and Patrice Riemens' Twelve Theses on Wikileaks is one of the more thoughtful pieces I've read so far.
