A pesar de que la organización Anonymous apoyó por mucho tiempo a WikiLeaks y a Jualian Assange, han dedicido dejar de ayudarlos.

Julian Assange creador de WikiLeaks

¿La razón?  Anonymous opina que WikiLeaks se ha convertido en pura publicidad para Julian Assange y se ha desviado de su propósito principal de promover la libertad de expresión.

A pesar de que Anonymous afirma que sigue apoyando el propósito inicial de WikiLeaks, argumenta que no tiene caso seguir del lado de Julian Assange, quien ha deformado a la organización con el fin de darse importancia a sí mismo y a los escándalos que ha vivido por meses.

La organización de hackers critica el hecho de que se haya abierto una campaña de recaudación de fondos para WikiLeaks, la cual ha sido implementada desde el 10 de octubre; en caso de que no se done dinero a WikiLeaks, muchos artículos permanecerán bloqueados. Esto ha molestado a los miembros de Aonymous, decidiendo que el mensaje y propósito original de la página han sido corrompidos y que se ha traicionado la idea que se tenía del sitio original.

Anonymous sostiene que Wikileaks los “traicionó”

La organización de hackers lanzó un comunicado apuntando contra la agrupación de Julian Assange. “No nos arriesgaremos más a ir a prisión para defender a sus enemigos”, sostuvieron.

“No soy yo, sos vos”, le podrían haber dicho desde Anonymous a Wikileaks. Es que lo que supo ser un matrimonio feliz hoy se convirtió en un polémico divorcio. El detonante fue la decisión de la organización de Julian Assange deutilizar un “muro de pago” para ingresar a sus documentos. Desde la agrupación de hackers sostuvieron que “ya soportaron demasiado” y que “fueron traicionados”. “La conclusión que hemos llegado es que Anonymous no puede apoyar más a la lo que Wikileaks se transformó”, sostuvieron en un comunicado.

Además, aseguraron que desde hace unos años que “están preocupados” por el estado de Wikileaks, ya que sostienen que pasó de ser una agrupación enfocada en la libertad de la información a poner sus ojos solo en su líder y el afán por conseguir dinero.

Actualmente, el muro de pago que aparecía para ingresar a ciertos documentos fue dado de baja. En un comunicadofirmado por Assange, la organización explica los nuevos archivos relacionados a las elecciones de Estados Unidos que habilitaron en su sitio y señalan que “todas las donaciones servirán para pagar los costos de infraestructura, como los legales por los bloqueos financieros que sufre la organización.  Leer más “Anonymous sostiene que Wikileaks los “traicionó””

Julian Assange publicará libro sobre la libertad y el futuro de internet


No cabe duda que la vida de Julian Assange en los últimos años da para escribir un libro, aunque esa tarea no se le ha dado fácil al fundador de WikiLeaks. Su último intento de escribir uno terminó en desastre cuando Assange canceló los contratos que tenía con la editorial, y la compañía publicó una autobiografía que estaba en etapa de borrador en contra de la voluntad de su autor.

Publicly Private Lives: The New Dynamic of Social Media

To post, or not to post: that is the question. Once a post, message or tweet is published, it is virtually impossible to undo. In these digital days, information becomes public in the blink of an eye. But, how much of ourselves do we really want publicly shared? As much as we’d like to think we’re in the age of ‘life as an open book’, privacy and digital surveillance are very hot topics.

Take the Fourth Amendment, which protects us from unreasonable search and seizure when we have a “reasonable expectation of privacy”. However, some argue that living out our lives and communications digitally forfeits that reasonable expectation of privacy by the very nature of us putting ourselves out there in the public domain. Since we have entrusted our personal information to the various social media tools we’ve signed up for, essentially we agree that we don’t consider that personal information private – right? Oh, and since we’re also aware that surveillance exists, we expect our personal information may be tapped at any time – or do we?

10 websites to watch in 2011

Hipmunk is fixing everything that’s wrong with flight searches with a tool whose usefulness is immense.
STORY HIGHLIGHTS

* Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform for creative endeavors
* Grooveshark might be the next big thing in online music
* Diaspora is an open source social network platform

(Mashable) — There are more than a trillion URLs in Google’s index. Yes, that’s a one with twelve zeros after it. And Google crossed that milestone two and a half years ago. With so many sites on the web in 2011, how do you know which to pay attention to?

Mashable’s editors haven’t quite visited a trillion pages, but we’ve checked out a lot in the past year, and we’ve compiled a list of 10 websites we think are poised to have big years in 2011.

Some of these are relatively new sites we think will catch the mainstream’s attention next year and others are older sites that we think will finally hit the big time in 2011.

WikiLeaks, Influence, and The Age of Honesty

It begins when we are children. As Steve Hein of EQI.org points out, “Children start out emotionally honest. They express their true feelings freely and spontaneously. But the training to be emotionally dishonest begins at an early age. The child is told to smile when actually she is sad. She is told to apologize when she feels no regret. She may be told to kiss people good night when she would never do so voluntarily.” In short, she will slowly be influenced to conform to a social structure that attempts to control what feels true.

But what does emotional honesty have to do with WikiLeaks and Digital Influence, you ask?

It’s simple really. We are still struggling – as individuals and as countries – to break down the walls of ‘protection’ that we have been brought up to believe we must build. We have not yet replaced those walls with the bridges necessary to fully transform society.

We’re secretive. We’re protective. We’re afraid.

The good news is this: with the growing activity and discussion around network and citizen journalism, as Paulo Freire, author of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, says, “Those who have been denied their primordial right to speak their word” are finally finding their voice. For the first time since the Pentagon Papers, a site like WikiLeaks, and the influence it wields when it comes to shaping public opinion and awakening the collective (un)conscious, forces us to come to terms with how much we – personally and collectively – are willing to face truth and introduce transparency into all aspects of our lives. Only then can we truly straighten out the backbone of our troubled world. Furthermore, as the developments around WikiLeaks elicit a conversation among populations, we are compelled to recognize that this is not just about the military’s secrets, but about our own. In search of the elusive idea of safety, the emotional honesty we have been forced to abandon – and forced our children to abandon – has only shown us the high price we pay when we spend our adult lives living in fear and unhappiness or practicing deceit.

We wear a mask that grins and lies
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes
This debt we pay to human guile
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile

Assange y Zuckerberg, dos paladines poco transparentes

El creador de WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, no quiere revelar cómo juntó el primer millón de dólares. Mark Zukerberg, numen de Facebook, parece el único no expuesto por la red social cuyo voyeurismo, de paso, empieza a suscitar rechazos en la gente.

En conjunto, ambos instrumentos, en una forma u otra, combinan polos contrarios; por ejemplo, diafanidad y secreto, privacidad y escándalo. En el caso de WikiLeads (“filtraciones Wiki”), han llegado a revelarse 76.000 documentos del Pentágono.

En teoría, esa red pretende que el “ciudadano de Internet” pueda intervenir forzando transparencia y divulgación de casi todo. Salvo cuanto atañe a la intimidad de Assange. En efecto, el Wall Street Journal ha puesto al descubierto algo poco grato al ex hacker australiano: dudas sobre el origen de los fondos (US$ 1.000.000) empleados para crear WikiLeaks. En otras palabras, transparencia para todos, salvo para el dueño del circo.
