WikiLeaks

Thanks to Richard Brenneman of Eats Shoots ‘n Leaves for bringing this important source to my attention:

WikiLeaks

Here’s their fundraising statement:

The Sunshine Press (WikiLeaks) is an non-profit organization funded by human rights campaigners, investigative journalists, technologists and the general public. Through your support we have exposed significant injustice around the world— successfully fighting off over 100 legal attacks in the process. Although our work produces reforms daily and is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the 2008 Index on Censorship-Economist Freedom of Expression Award as well as the 2009 Amnesty International New Media Award, these accolades do not pay the bills. Nor can we accept government or corporate funding and maintain our absolute integrity. It is your strong support alone that preserves our continued independence and strength.

Unless you are a government or a corporation, I suggest you send them some money.

And don’t forget to support your local library. It’s not just the Internet that’s taking pressure.

Incidentally, Librarian.net has some wonderful “technically legal” signs with innovative answers to the Patriot Act. My favorite says this:

THE FBI HAS NOT BEEN HERE
[WATCH FOR THE REMOVAL OF THIS SIGN]

I’ve always wanted to thank the person who came up with this one. Brilliant.

Watch for the removal of WikiLeaks too.
