Assange, ¡ese candidato!

Diagonal publica nuestro post más meneado últimamente: Cebrián, ¡ese hacker! Y mientras PRISA se reconvierte en buque pirata, Assange se presentará de candidato electoral electoral.

John Keane, convertido en su groupie, come y cena con Assange. Bebe sus palabras. Destaca la descripción del Partido Wikileaks (a establecer posibles paralelismos con el Partido X):

Dice Assange: “The party will combine a small, centralised leadership with maximum grass roots involvement and support. By relying on decentralised Wikipedia-style, user-generated structures, it will do without apparatchiks. The party will be incorruptible and ideologically united.” I flinch at his mention of ideological unity. He explains that the party will display iron self-discipline in its support for maximum “inclusiveness”. It will be bound together by unswerving commitment to the core principles of civic courage nourished by “understanding” and “truthfulness” and the “free flow of information”. It will practise in politics what WikiLeaks has done in the field of information. It will be digital, and stay digital. Those who don’t accept its transparency principles will be told to “rack off”. That’s the ideological unity bit.

El partido interface como prototipo institucional se expande internacionalmente, incluida la victoria de Beppe Gillo en Italia, tercera fuerza política en las recientes elecciones.

Dice J. Keane: "Assange agrees the WikiLeaks Party must address and respond creatively to the creeping local disaffection with mainstream politicians, parties and parliaments. “I loathe the reactiveness of the Left,” and that’s why, he says, much can be learned from clever new initiatives in other countries. We discuss Beppe Grillo’s 5 Star movement (it could well win up to 15% of the popular vote in Italy’s forthcoming general election). On our list is the Pirate Party in Germany (it practises “liquid democracy” and has representatives in four state parliaments). So is Iceland’s Best Party. It won enough votes to co-run the Reykjavik City Council, partly on the promise that it would not honour any of its promises, that since all other political parties are secretly corrupt it would be openly corrupt. Assange lets out a laugh. “Parties should be fun. They should put the word party back into politics.” The WikiLeaks Party will try to do this, and to learn from initiatives in other democracies. Supported by networks of “friends of WikiLeaks”, it will be seen as “work in progress” designed “to outflank its opponents”.
Más, aquí,

Mientras tanto, nuestra amiga Birgitta Jondosttir, desafía a EE.UU. anuncia un tour en apoyo de Bradley Manning. Lo hace sospechando de la amenaza de que pesa una investigación en curso sobre ella y un posible procesamiento si la pescan en suelo norteamericano. EE.UU. exigió que Twitter cediese los datos de su cuenta y se niega a  informar de los requerimientos hechos a otras compañías.

Y nadie, excepto los rusos y Rebelión se hacen eco de que, tras la victoria de Correa, Wikileaks ha
publicado más de 5 millones de e-mails secretos de la compañía estadounidense Stratfor, especializada en servicios de inteligencia y espionaje.
