Jacques Kruger Information is power

The uproar around Wikileaks has nothing to do with the threat that the release of the information represents, but rather that it dilutes the value of information in general.

Wolfgang Grulke Has the need for transparency been forgotten???

It seems as if the pursuit of openness has been forgotten in the pursuit of Assange. This article puts into perspective what happened three years ago and why at least part of the revelations were necessary - it also makes some good points about the need for 'Naked Leadership'!
