Economist on the new Wikileaks document dump

The Economist has a short piece posted about the most recent document dump from WikiLeaks. A key quote:

Maybe it's something about tech geeks, or maybe it's just related to the self-interest of people and organisations whose particular strength lies in an ability to get a hold of other people's information. But it definitely seems like we're learning a lesson here: while information may want to be free, human beings are usually better off when it's on a leash.
