But there must be the consensus. I tend to think that if one person is strongly opposed to a lock, and is making that stand based on some principle they are able to articulate, then that position should be respected and consensus does not exist. But if some people are just-kinda-meh-not-sure opposed to a lock, then you can assume that consensus exists. But I think the bigger picture is that if everyone is doing the job in good faith and being polite to each other, then it should not be very hard to determine if consensus exists and act accordingly. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12595617 [/div] ~~~~~~ Hi Jerry!!! :thumbsup:[font color=blue][b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|Visit the new DU \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Progressive Media Resources Group\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"][/font size][/font color][/b]:thumbsup: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121223012937-11-obama-face-1223-horizontal-gallery.jpg :thumbsup:[font color = blue][b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|Visit the new DU \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Progressive Media Resources Group\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"][/font size][/font color][/b]:thumbsup: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121223012937-11-obama-face-1223-horizontal-gallery.jpg

I watched a special on Current TV about Julian Assange and about WikiLeaks....

Julian came of as a bit of an ass in it. I was surprised by his behavior, but also encouraged by the way it's become a decentralized movement.

There's a new offering launched by his former associate, Daniel Domscheit-Berg (pictured below), called OpenLeaks: http://www.openleaks.org/



And there are other spinoffs, like Cryptome: http://cryptome.org/

Like OWS, the movement abhors centralized power, so Julian will become a bit of history.



Here's a story from "Wired" about Assange's maniacal treatment of his crew:

WikiLeaks Threatens Its Own Leakers With $20 Million Penalty

By Kevin Poulsen Email Author
May 11, 2011


WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange now makes his associates sign a draconian nondisclosure agreement that, among other things, asserts that the organization’s huge trove of leaked material is “solely the property of WikiLeaks,” according to a report Wednesday.

“You accept and agree that the information disclosed, or to be disclosed to you pursuant to this agreement is, by its nature, valuable proprietary commercial information,” the agreement reads, “the misuse or unauthorized disclosure of which would be likely to cause us considerable damage.”

The confidentiality agreement (.pdf), revealed by the New Statesman, imposes a penalty of 12 million British pounds– nearly $20 million — on anyone responsible for a significant leak of the organization’s unpublished material. The figure is based on a “typical open-market valuation” of WikiLeaks’ collection, the agreement claims. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2011/05/nda-wikileaks/




Fucking edited to fucking add the URL goddammit. Why with all the new fucking bells and whistles must DU3 force a post with a fucking correction to bear the red lettered mark of shame for having edited, huh???

Hey!!!

I heard y'all were lookin' fer me!



I'll spend more time with you all once DU2 is dead!

I had the privilege of being with Bill Ayers for three days last week.

His views on education are something that everyone needs to hear, in my opinion.

Among the various speakers, attendees I spoke with agreed that his presentation was the most compelling.

I didn't know that he had experience teaching Kindergarten, and working with at-risk youth.

I believe his 25 minute talk will be posted to the Internet soon and I'll post a link.

He calls bullshit on the bullshit and sees the big picture.

Not just "teachers- well rested and well paid", but "education, for everyone, is a right".

I never thought I'd ever be "pallin' around with a terrorist!
