This could get messy

I fully support Wikilinks and what they are doing.  For the most part i think that transparency is of increasing importance.   

Governments and big corps are so intertwined at this point how this is all playing out is fascinating.  With anonymous and 4chan attacking anti-wikilinks sites.  

Freedom of speech is too important and precious to allow those with money to take it from us for our own "safety".

Gizmodo just posted a link to an application called the low orbit ion canon which allows you to participate in DDOS attacks without really needing to know anything about them.  The potential of this kind of application is terrifying.   

A a protest tool I think it is fantastic but I worry about where things like this will lead in the long run.

I have a feeling anon and 4chan are going to be stirring up some major shit over the next while.
