Wikileaks Fundraising, Internet Censorship, Unfree as in Video, and Museums Online
- WikiLeaks Fundraising — PayPal has frozen WikiLeaks’ assets. Interesting: they need $600k/yr to run.
- The Great Australian Internet Blackout — online protest to raise awareness about the Great Firewall of Australia.
- History of the World in 100 Objects (BBC) — a radio show, telling the history of humanity in 100 objects from the British Library. Exquisitely high quality commentary (available in original audio and in textual transcript), hi-resolution images, maps, timelines, and more. It’s growing day by day as episodes air, and shows how a quintessentially offline place like a museum can add to the online world.
