The Internet's role in democracy

An interesting story today about propaganda and the intertubes. Military personnel have been caught editing and posting entries on Wikipedia and Digg, designed to change the public's view on the not-so-secret military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The actions were documented and publicized by Wikileaks, a group who caused a stir last month when they leaked the operating manual for the prison on Wikipedia.

Regardless of your views of GITMO, this illustrates the role the Internet can play in dealing with governments—not to mention the role nerds play in totally ticking people off.

Full report here.
