Rebooting the News 75

As Dave said Dec. 3rd, “We’re having a Rebooting The News moment here with WikiLeaks.” Indeed. Now we now how the open Net comes crashing down.

  • First came the denial of service attacks. (Dave: “How do we know that?”)
  • Next, Amazon Web Services kicked Wikileaks off its cloud servers.
  • Then it was, which stopped serving the domain
  • Then Tableau Software removed data visualizations Wikileaks had running there.
  • Then PayPal started choking off the air supply: donations.
  • The U.S. Library of Congress even got into the act, shutting down access to Wikileaks at its terminals.
