    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.

    The President of the United States can order the killing of US citizens, far from any battlefield, without charges, a trial, or any form of advance judicial approval. That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder told a group of students at Northwestern Law School yesterday, in a much anticipated speech. The Constitution requires the government to obtain a judicial warrant based on probable cause before it can search your backpack or attach a GPS tracking device to your car, but not, according to Holder, before it kills you.

    Since the summer of 2010 until now, Swedish television has been following WikiLeaks, a network of secret means, and his enigmatic Editor in Chief, Julian Assange.

    Reporters Jesper Huor and Lindquist Bosse have traveled to key countries where WikiLeaks operates, interviewing board members, such as Assange, new spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson, and people such as Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who is now starting its own version - Openleaks . org!

    Where do you direct this organization so discreet? Stronger than ever, or disarmed by the U.S.? Who is Assange: champion of freedom, spyware or rapist? What are their goals? What are the consequences for the Internet?

    Quote from George Orwell:
    If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

    The documentary on Swedish television site here.

    Don't miss the incredible architecture of one of the WikiLeaks headquarters, by Albert France-Lanord Architects



    To finish, I'm very frustated about the final facts of the documentary, I would add a final quote, to sum up, because the reaction of the other members of Wikileaks can produce a single huge post about human being.

    Quote from Rabindranath Tagore:
    He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.

    My last post can be read under a lot point of views. This time, I only want to focus on a global calling of a global brand. I love talking about global concepts, you know.

    But, with the comment from ZoeWiseman (I appreciate it a lot), the eternal debate about how enterprises take for his profit our data emerge on the room. How many hours have passed talking about that with my friends? A lot. And, certainly, our privacy is a concept very important to us. But why? I don’t know.

    It’s about all of your data

    Of course, I listen slowly the arguments, and understand the hypothetic situations if the data will lost or stolen. But why? All we do gives a data, a pattern written by nature before we birth. It sounds very poetic, but, thinks in that situation. If we see this flow of data (there is more fields that you can imagine), the human being wants to understand the pattern, it’s a natural act, and it's there but the question is really based on the Who. Who will analise these flow.

    The first and faster protagonist of a field:
    Mobileme -> Apple
    Ovi -> Nokia
    Android -> Google

    Any people should do this, but who will do this, possibility it, what should be like? Or, who we want they like? This is the real debate, but, at the end, only the simple question about who should do it, is uncomfortable.

    It's good to think about this things, now we have time, and, luckily we can decide who will do these job.
