An interesting analysis of the motivations behind WikiLeaks: it's not to embarrass the government, so much as it is to make government conspiracy (where conspiracy refers to any intra-governmental, non-public process) far more difficult.

"...Stuxnet's authors were uncommonly thorough about not leaving clues in their code; the markers could have been deliberately planted by someone who wanted to frame Israel. Or they could have been deliberately planted by Israel, who wanted us to think they were planted by someone who wanted to frame Israel. Once you start walking down this road, it's impossible to know when to stop.

...why is Stuxnet so sloppily targeted? Why doesn't Stuxnet erase itself when it realizes it's not in the targeted network? Maybe we're not supposed to reverse engineer the target. By allowing Stuxnet to spread globally, its authors committed collateral damage worldwide. From a foreign policy perspective, that seems dumb. But maybe Stuxnet's authors didn't care.

My guess is that Stuxnet's authors, and its target, will forever remain a mystery."

Rosen argues that Wikileaks is a "stateless" (read: decentralized, or P2P) news organization. It's a great example of internet-enabled guerrilla activism. As the New Yorker profile notes, they're so decentralized, none of them know who the others are (except Assange, of course). And yet they're effective activists.
