[News] Wintel Press Dies, Wikileaks Down Due to High Demand

Hash: SHA1

Good-Bye PC Magazine

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, almost all of my work appears online first. I’m fine with that. Still, 
| I got my start with now long gone print publications like Byte and 
| PC/Computing. Seeing PC Magazine, the most popular of all the print PC 
| publications leave is like seeing an old friend moving to another country. I 
| know he’ll still be alive out there online, but it just isn’t going to be the 
| same.     


BNP list hunters bring down Wikileaks

,----[ Quote ]
| The Wikileaks website struggled to stay online yesterday because of thousands 
| of people looking for the leaked BNP membership list. 
| As revealed by the Register the list of more than 10,000 BNP members was 
| leaked early on Monday morning and although it was removed from the original 
| blog it quickly appeared elsewhere on the net. Police are investigating how 
| the list got out, though BNP leader Nick Griffin is blaming ex-staff at the 
| party.    


Wikileaks: tomorrow's 'press' and everything the world needs to restore justice
and battle corruption through anonymous transparency.


Ziff Davis files for bankruptcy protection

| Print and Web publisher Ziff Davis Media filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy 
| protection on Wednesday, citing declining advertising revenue and 
| subscriptions as contributing factors, according an Associated Press report 
| Wednesday.   


Breaking: Wikileaks Missing

,----[ Quote ]
| Breaking News has just learned that Wikileaks — the website utilized to post
| materials obtained from Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin's
| personal Yahoo mail account — is, for undisclosed reasons, no longer
| available online. The extent of the outage is not currently known, thought it
| appears all mirrors of the site are offline, including domains for the United
| Kingdom, Belgium, and Christmas Island.
| We have been unable to identify the source of the outage, though the internet
| is alive with rumors. Paramount among them is the obvious and expected
| suggestion that U.S. law enforcement — who are known to be investigating the
| incident — has shut down the site. However, Wikileaks is hosted by Swedish
| provider PRQ — notorious for employing a "no questions asked" policy towards
| its customers — and U.S. authorities would lack the jurisdiction to take
| action against PRQ.


Wikileaks Shutdown: Censorship Is Censorship

,----[ Quote ]
| If Wikileaks were a print publication, the injunction that has shut down the 
| site would be unthinkable. Back in 1931, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a 
| Minnesota law that allowed the closing of any "malicious, scandalous and 
| defamatory" periodical. This court, by contrast, has not only barred future 
| publication of the documents at issue but elected to put Wikileaks out of 
| business.     


Free Speech Advocates Mount Legal Battle to Unchain Wikileaks

,----[ Quote ]
| In Bank Julius Baer & Co., Ltd v. Wikileaks, et al, the plaintiff claims that 
| the posting of certain documents to the Wikileaks site violated Swiss and 
| Cayman Island bank secrecy laws.  
| Judge Jeffrey White ordered domain registrar Dynadot to disable Wikileaks.org 
| in response to Julius Baer & Co.'s complaint. The groups behind the request 
| to lift the injunction claim that it violates the First Amendment.  


WikiLeaks Under Fire

,----[ Quote ]
| The transparency group WikiLeaks.org currently seems to be under heavy fire. 
| The main WikiLeaks.org DNS entry is unavailable, reportedly due to a 
| restraining order relating to a series of articles and documents released by 
| WikiLeaks about off-shore trust structures in the Cayman Islands. The 
| WikiLeaks whistle blower, allegedly former vice president of the Cayman 
| Islands branch of swiss bank Julius Baer, states in the WikiLeaks documents 
| that the bank supported tax evasion and money laundering by its clients from 
| around the world
