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!

I think this is a good post linking to (and summarizing) some secondary scholarship on Assange over at anotherpanacea.

Clay Shirky and Evgeny Morozov are good places to start.

Christian Caryl on the New York Review Blog.

Coverage in the New Yorker.

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.

Bruce Sterling: The Blast Shack. Highly recommended.
