Re: <nettime> Questions concerning Wikileaks


Well, I still think Assange or whoever should have just put his stuff
on a DVD with a resonable interface and sold it in bookshops etc.
Nothing beats real life!

In this way he would have had the same legal and political questions
discussed that are the main point of the enterprise (IMHO). He could
have had some online version, mirrors etc too as a second leg and for
"security".

The material is interesting allthough when you have read one of the
cables you have allready have read them all. Nothing new under the
sun!
