Totally Open Source!

With the title of the blog being Sourced and with the description of this, to the right, one of the ways I like to look at the meaning of source is as a source code. a controlling entity. This entity is typically thought of as a computer program or function but it can take on other more, much more serious roles. Think human life! What are the policies of governments if not source codes to address relationships with those whom they control and with others who seek to control. In this mindset today has brought the conclusion to a brilliant series of events. Wikileaks, the infamous propagator of all things confidential has completed its release of 250,000 classified government cables, packaged and searchable for download. This has the same implications upon the fields of history, political science, journalism, indeed it is endless, as the creation of Linux or Google had upon the fields of computation. Get to wikileaks and get your copy of the encyclopedia of government secrecy!
