I went to the RSA for one of its many lunch time debates and/or discussions it has held every year for the past couple of decades. These last just an hour so many Fellows and friends are able to pop in during lunch-time to hear a current topic being thought through by a couple of experts.
Today, there was a lecture followed by a Q&A by Evgeny Mozorov entitled The Future of Wikileaks - you can catch it on www.thersa.org/events/listen-live

which has just been published here in the UK.
I asked about the relationship between Wikileaks and the five international newspapers which had been publishing extracts (normally redacted) and also about the speech Hillary Clinton made in January, 2010 calling for the First Amendment to be applied to the net and then suddenly denouncing Wikileaks in a speech in December.
