In case you’ve been camping in the middle of nowhere for the past couple of weeks, the website WikiLeaks has been making headlines about the confidential documents they have released to the public. This is serious history right here and it is definitely something that needs to be brought up in class. I’ve listed a few discussion points, but if you have some better ones add them into the comments.

  1. Do you agree with what WikiLeaks is doing?
  2. Does information really help keep governments honest?
  3. Should WikiLeaks be considered a terrorist organization?
  4. Is the large amount of information on the Internet a good thing or should it be regulated?

I’m sure that this is not the last of the big news from WikiLeaks. Keep your eyes peeled and your minds open to the new exciting growth of the Internet.
