    This article just published reckons that Wikileaks is now "nearly immune to takedown".

    Just been in to town and one of the shops was having problems with Mastercard payments. Don't know if it's related. Girl on the checkout said it was local.

    An encrpyted copy of all the leaked cables has been distributed over p2p - if they were to take down Wikileaks (and every mirror) the decryption key would just be announced and the information would be in the hands of everyone.
