On the timeliness of Berlin Station #richardarmitage
So today’s big news story in the cyberworld is that Julian Assange tweeted a series of codes designed to allow the verification of files wikileaks is planning to leak. Interesting on a bunch of levels, not just because he apparently has more to leak before the U.S. election but also because someone has realized that the last information derived from wikileaks had been altered to suit someone’s political agenda.
I’m not a fan of Assange’s; in fact, I think he is dangerous; however, we are living in a world in which these ongoing leaks have the potential to change the course of history. At the same time, however, judging from where I am seeing these reports, it’s a very limited group of people who seem to care at all that it’s happening. That’s the world of Berlin Station, I supposed; timely but encapsulated / obscure. Timely, definitely, but relevant? That’s up to the audience.
