Information wars ahead?

Control over the internet will be a central issue as time goes on and the Wikileaks story is highlighting this issue right now.

The BBC’s technology reporter, Maggie Shiels, said in her WikiLeaks report on Wednesday, “WikiLeaks themselves have said they’ll continue leaking the documents and, if you want to stop us, you’ll probably have to shut down the Internet.” –BBC World News, December 8, 2010″

Now hackers aided by numerous average people using distributed software are attacking the websites of Mastercard, Paypal and VISA in protest over the muzzling of the Wikileaks site. Apparently Amazon will be targeted next.
