Still not very compelling writing, and for longer articles it's definitely the work of a very junior reporter, but you can see the direction this is taking.

Most uncharacteristic behaviour by News International signals to the rest of their brands that they have to keep their unethical behaviour legal.

Dan Gillmor on leaks and journalism: "By [Washington Post journalist] Krauthammer's sick standards, the death squads should be converging soon on his own offices, as well as those of the Times and London's Guardian and more."

If this is true it undermines the whole transparency case Assange is making and shames everyone involved. Investigative journalism is not about enabling the enemy to kill more people, regardless of the war disgrace being exposed

Excellent response to the New York Times' article calling for the ergulation of Google, and with a delightful parody of their article as well.

"What’s remarkable about this entire episode is how decade-old web writings have been used against me in a blog-based smear campaign, which then, after another two years, successfully escalated into a mainstream news publication. This is an eye-opening example of how defamatory information can be spread – all going back to an anonymous smear letter distributed in 2008 – and how helpless and incompetent mainstream media can be when dealing with such challenges."

Gruber has a full analysis of this, but suffice to say that it may not be smart to pay some guy $5000 for a phone he found in a bar that's very obviously Apple's property.

Roy is right - it's really bad practice for journalists to talk about security and usability issues on Windows as "computer issues" without pointing out they are on Windows. The same journalists call out Mac and Linux issues so they should also name (and shame) Windows when it's a problem on Windows.

Important essay by Clay Shirky explains why complex systems must collapse, rather than adapt or simplify. He writes about Television but the lessons seem to me to be generally applicable.

"But there is one compensating advantage for the people who escape the old system: when the ecosystem stops rewarding complexity, it is the people who figure out how to work simply in the present, rather than the people who mastered the complexities of the past, who get to say what happens in the future."

Unless they convince people outside the system to prop them up somehow, that is. In that case those people become part of the complexity, part of the system, and when the collapse comes collapse with it. This is our collective fate if we allow our legislators to prop up the complex but obsolete business models of the past. It's why the Digital Economy Bill - and its inspiration, ACTA - are so toxic to society, way beyond the scope they appear to hold.
