Wikileaks - for Government whistleblowers

Who's leaking now?

Well, more government workers will now be able to leak documents via a new Austrailian website called Wikileaks - like Wikipedia. Yippee! Hope it's available to Americans soon.

We like this idea a bunch:
Wikileaks' creators say they will uncover unethical behaviour by developing "an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis"....A "wiki" system is seen as a more effective method of leaking than simply publishing an article in the press or on a traditional website, because it allows for collaboration on a global scale.

Although the website says its primary interests are oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet Bloc, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, whistleblowing experts say it could have strong applications in Australia.
