Things have been moving so fast over the last five days I haven’t had a chance to come up for air. This entire ordeal has completely taken over my life, just when I think things are calming down, some gigantic media outlet comes out with another story about Wikileaks that includes the erroneous “fact” that […]
Concerns around Wikileaks DNS for easyDNS Members
I’ve received a few emails and comments to the blog expressing perfectly understandable concern around easyDNS providing DNS for wikileaks.ch (what’s more, wikileaks.nl has also just added our DNS to their nameserver delegation).
