The internet: it works bitches!

“The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.”
~John Gilmore

They tried to bring WikiLeaks down with DDOS attacks. They disabled the URL “wikileaks.org“. They cancelled the WikiLeaks paypal account. They kicked WikiLeaks off Amazon’s cloud.

And then the internet starting working.

(ps. I have a feeling that the “cablegate” leak was not that enlightening. There was a big FUCK YOU to those who would want to keep all this information secret (which was totally worth it), there was stuff we already knew or were suspecting and there was a lot of gossip, but other than that, I’m not sure what we got out of this. However (1) there is still much to be published from the 250k cablegate files (2) the cablegate leak was just the most recent one of a tradition of very important leaks (3) there are all indications that we are to expect other important leaks in the future (4) oh no no no, we won’t back down, this is too much fun.)
