Wikileaks -- What Does This Mean for New Media?

Wikileaks has had and continues to have a profound impact on global politics, US and International diplomacy, international law, security, the rights of a sovereign state vs. freedom of speech, and on, and on. Yet, we at NMI believe that the underlying significance of Wikileaks is this: the power of new media and the internet is indescribably awesome, instantaneous and frightening. Wikileaks exemplifies the good and bad that new media embodies. The cautionary tale here is that we are human, and that we’ve developed one hell of an awesome communications “tool kit”. And that’s our take.
