@kade_ellis Good question. Cause there is "controversy" over whether #WikiLeaks is a journalist org? I don't know.

UNESCO conference on #WikiLeaks about to begin. Will be tweeting about it using #OccupyUNESCO.
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: Heather Brooke's there, David Leigh as well. HB to deliver keynote on 1st panel. #WikiLeaks
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: anyone else out there without audio on the livestream? (or is it just my computer?)
M @m_cetera
Somebody at @UNESCOnow doesn't know how to work the sound for the livestream. Won't be tweeting unless its fixed. #WikiLeaks #OccupyUNESCO
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: now playing recorded message by #Unesco's director, talking abt accountability & 'open & informed debate'
M @m_cetera
"Key point of UNESCO is for open debate..." unless you work for #WikiLeaks. #OccupyUNESCO
M @m_cetera
Recorded message of UNESCO director talking about freedom of expression and such. This is all so ironic now. #WikiLeaks #OccupyUNESCO
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: unesco director: "we must work every day 2 promote freedom of expression, respect for privacy" -> what about #WikiLeaks ?!
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: Guy Berger now introducing Heather Brooke, author of 'famous' books 'the silent state' & 'revolution will be digitised'
M @m_cetera
Heather Brooke: "This is one of the more interesting & thoughtful conferences I'll attend." #WikiLeaks #OccupyUNESCO
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: HB now starting her keynote, quoting from sci-fi novel "Shockwave Rider" (1957), e.g. free data havens #WikiLeaks
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: good gracious, HB now quoting from Neal Stephenson's "Cryptonomicon" about data havens & cypherpunks
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: Stephenson should sue HB for piracy/ copyright infringement...
M @m_cetera
Brooke: "WikiLeaks & the NOTW scandal reveal ways that news orgs can be complicit with the powerful." #OccupyUNESCO
Kevin Gosztola @kgosztola
"Free press is not so free." Confined by special interests of the powerful & the corporate @newsbrooke #UNESCO
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: HB - media world after #WikiLeaks & #NotW don't give voice to voiceless & power to powerless but rather voice to powerful
M @m_cetera
I do find it rather strange that #WikiLeaks and #NOTW are being bundled up into the same thing. #OccupyUNESCO
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: HB now quoting from Orwell's 1984, the tasks of the ministry of truth
M @m_cetera
Brooke: "WikiLeaks is not actually all that new or revolutionary." #OccupyUNESCO
Cass Andra @nyxpersephone
#OccupyUNESCO: HB - digitised information can easily be modified, deleted, e.g. rewriting stories (similar to 1984's ministry of truth)
Kevin Gosztola @kgosztola
.@newsbrooke saying #WikiLeaks is not that new; movement of radical transparency has been around for decades #UNESCO
