Best online discussion about wikileaks yet.

I was gonna post this the other day.  After the events in Egypt some of it is even more pertinent.

Its a forum discussing wikileaks moderated by Paul Jay of Real News Network – Wikileaks:  Why it matters.  Why it doesn’t. –  the panel is:

Daniel Ellsberg, Former State and Defense Dept. Official prosecuted for releasing the Pentagon Papers.

Clay Shirky, Independent Internet Professional; Adjunct Professor, Interactive Telecommunications Program, New York University.

Neville Roy Singham, Founder and Chairman, ThoughtWorks.

Peter Thiel, President, Clarium Capital; Managing Partner, Founder’s Fund.

Jonathan Zittrain, Professor of Law and Professor of Computer Science, Harvard University; Co-founder, Berkman Center for Internet & Society.

Its nearly 2 hours, but well worth it.

I’ll embed it when I work out how to.
