xkcd does Anonymous and WikiLeaks

xkcd cartoon: “Wikileaks”

Personally, I wouldn’t be too saddened if that did happen in some manner. WikiLeaks are journalistic heroes sacrificing time, effort and security to spread truths that need to be known. Anonymous is a group of criminals who apparently think bringing down a few random websites for a few hours is making a strong ideo-political point. One of these is actually getting something valuable done; the other is content with spreading damage and irritation under the guise of fighting for what’s right.
