Wikileaks - Juan Cole

Wikileaks and the New McCarthyism: Maybe we Just Need a More Open Government | Informed Comment

Juan Cole's excellent post on Wikileaks. Including this...
The call by Amazon was a very bad one, and some observers are rightly wondering if it will hurt “cloud computing,” where you put your documents up at a server instead of on your firm’s or university’s desktops. It seems to me that Amazon’s terms of service would continually bring into question how secure your documents were, especially if they might dump you as a customer even though you had broken no known law. ...

I hadn't really thought about this but it seems like a big deal. Would you trust your data to Amazon now that Joe Lieberman has shown he can take it from you?
