WikiLeaks.org applies for $532,000 funding from the Knight Foundation -
for "local news" whistleblower leaks ?

,----[ Quote ]
| WikiLeakS.org has applied for a grant from 
| the Knight Foundation a charitable 
| foundation financed from the former 
| Knight-Ridder US newspaper conglomerate.
| Do not confuse this with the recently 
| revived 1980's fictional Knight Rider TV 
| series featuring a supposedly artificially 
| intelligent car, which starred David 
| Hasselhoff.

TSA Withdraws Subpoenas Against Bloggers

,----[ Quote ]
| In the wake of public outcry against the 
| Transportation Security Administration for 
| serving civil subpoenas on two bloggers, 
| the government agency has canceled the 
| legal action and apologized for the 
| strong-arm tactics agents used.
| Travel writer and photographer Steven 
| Frischling, who was served with a subpoena 
| by two TSA agents on Tuesday, told Threat 
| Level that he received a phone call 
| Thursday evening from John Drennan, deputy 
| chief counsel for enforcement at TSA, 
| telling him the administration was 
| withdrawing its subpoena.


President Obama, It's Time To Fire the TSA

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, DHS's Napolitano's response to the 
| crotchbomber: "We're looking to make sure 
| that this sort of incident cannot recur." 
| But the TSA's response to Abdulmutalib's 
| attempt makes one thing clear: We must 
| stop pretending the TSA is making us 
| safer.
| Security expert Bruce Schneier nails the 
| core incompetency: "For years I've been 
| saying 'Only two things have made flying 
| safer [since 9/11]: the reinforcement of 
| cockpit doors, and the fact that 
| passengers know now to resist hijackers.'"
| So what has the TSA done in response to 
| the attempted attack? They've told 
| airlines to make passengers stay in their 
| seats during the last hour of flight. 
| They've made it verboten for passengers to 
| hold anything in their laps, again only 
| during the last hour of flight. Perhaps 
| most hilariously telling, they've 
| forbidden pilots from announcing when a 
| plane is flying over certain cities and 
| landmarks. 


Long arm of law reaches into World of Warcraft

,----[ Quote ]
| The virtual world of online gaming seems 
| like the perfect place to hide. There is 
| plenty of anonymity, and itâs almost 
| impossible for someone to trace activity 
| back to its source, right? Wrong.
| Two weeks ago, Howard County Sheriffâs 
| Department deputy Matt Roberson tracked 
| down a wanted fugitive through one of the 
| most popular games on the Internet â World 
| of Warcraft. And he got his man.



Wikileaks is in trouble.

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite frequent press confusion, Wikileaks
| is nothing to do with Wikimedia at all â
| âwikiâ is a generic term for âmass-editable
| websiteâ and they use MediaWiki, but
| thereâs no connection.


UK air traffic control goes after Wikileaks

,----[ Quote ]
| The National Aviation and Transport Services
| (NATS) is threatening legal action against
| Wikileaks because the website has published
| a recording of the crashing of BA flight
| 038, call sign Speedbird 38, which came down
| just short of the Heathrow runway in 2008.
