In the News And so the Wikileaks saga continues - with politics once again crossing with the technology side of things. After several DDoS attacks on Wikileaks' website, the organisation decided to move their website over to Amazon's cloud service yesterday. Today, Amazon kicked Wikileaks out of its cloud after being pressured by US Congress. Update: [Kroc] In a Q&A on the Guardian website, Julian Assange drops the bomb--Amazon failed the test: "Since 2007 we have been deliberately placing some of our servers in jurisdictions that we suspected suffered a free speech deficit inorder to separate rhetoric from reality. Amazon was one of these cases.". Stunning.

Shoot the messenger much?

Hahaha! This is by far the worst quote ever!

A messenger delivers a message from one person to another, under orders of the initial person.

I am pretty sure that, back in the day when messengers were shot, the messenger would have been shot if he heard a conversation he was not supposed to about diplomacy and then started spreading it around town!
