(2010-12-01) Amazon Stops Hosting Wikileaks
Amazon.com has taken down the WikiLeaks web site under what appears to be pressure from the U.S. government. Senator Joseph Lieberman issued a statement saying that Amazon.com has informed his staff that the company has ceased hosting Wikileaks... As we reported earlier this week, Wikileaks appears to have moved its main site to AWS in an attempt to thwart a denial-of-service attack against its servers that began last Sunday. Why your Dark Net needs to be P2P.
Yet another reason to avoid supporting a BigWorld Monoculture. (Some people think the problem is privatization, but are you counting on Joe L to have less control over a public webhost infrastructure?)
