Bruce Sterling on Wikileaks - I smell BenGay and OldSpice

The Blast Shack:
"If the Internet was walking around in public, it would look and act a lot like Julian Assange. The Internet is about his age, and it doesn’t have any more care for the delicacies of profit, propriety and hierarchy than he does."

A very long article by Sterling on Wikileaks, Assange, Manning, the NSA, "cypherpunks", and Sterling's own massive ego. Some funny bits (unintentional) so its worth reading.
