Wikileaks was just a stepping stone.
"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered, the point is to discover them." - Galileo Galilei
"If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants." - Sir Issac Newton
In light of the current troubles facing wikileaks, the recent arrest of it's founder, the attacks on the website, the withdrawl of corporate partnerships, there is still a public demand for the curtain, which our government operates, to be pulled back.
It has been reported by CNN that a wikileak splinter group plans to soon be launching their own website, Openleaks.org for whistle blowers.
Additionally there has been a Russian counterpart, Rospil.info. The founder, Alexei Navalny, is a political activist that hopes his site can combat the rampant corruption increasing in the former USSR.
As more people find themselves feeling disenfranchised with their political leaders, there can be only more activists and patriots forcing the transparency that the people really expect from their government.
