searching for thoughtful, in-depth criticism of Wikileaks
December 21, 2010 1:34 PM   Subscribe

Looking for thoughtful criticism (either pro- or anti-) on WikiLeaks, in particular works that explore WikiLeaks' moral dimensions and/or historical context.

Really hoping to find stuff that provides a larger perspective, not just news. Examples: Jaron Lanier in The Atlantic, Henry Porter in the Guardian. Thanks!

Clay Shirky and Evgeny Morozov are good places to start.

Glenn Greenwald, a former constitutional law and civil rights litigator, has a (high-quality, IMO) blog on Salon. He's written at least a dozen entries lately around Wikileaks, and I've found most of them insightful and enlightening.
