Wikileaks is Skint

Wikileaks, the groundbreaking website which publishes what people don’t want you to know in an increasingly hostile legal environment, is in financial difficulties.  The website is down and the home page is requesting donations.  By coincidence the BBC’s Culture Show did a profile last night of the website (go 17 ½ minutes in on iPlayer).

Wikileaks refuses to accept corporate sponsorship.  As someone who uses it both as a tool and a resource it seems to me that this is making things unnecessarily hard for themselves.  So long as they have a plurality of donors and don’t give donors any control it doesn’t matter.

A lot of new media and tech corporations would be happy to just be associated with Wikileaks…
