Wikileaks Cablegate: We're Only Getting Started


Summary: Status report on Cablegate at Techrights

THANKS to those who are helping us with Cablegate. An hour or so ago we asked a question about Econoff and soon afterwards found out that it's an unnamed economic officer, who is referred to not as a collective but a person (this was stated in one Web page). It is interesting to see what role government plays in promoting Microsoft's agenda. The term Econoff is mentioned a lot when one lobbies for interests of Microsoft.

"This whole effort pays off as it received mainstream coverage that helps expose Microsoft, e.g. in Tunisia."Currently we are focusing mostly on Microsoft cables, but that will change quite soon. The plan is a strategy of one-at-a-time, as at some stage we'll turn to other subjects and go through them one by one, e.g. cables about open source. "These cables from a search of "open source" and software," explains Mr. Love who collected many, "plus additional searches using the terms Linux, FOSS, Ubuntu and "free software." I have included excerpts to relevant sections of the cables, as well as links to the full cables, for additional context. I will be adding more cables as I find them."

We found that there are also dozens about Linux and assigned these to those who are willing to give a helping hand. This whole effort pays off as it received mainstream coverage that helps expose Microsoft, e.g. in Tunisia. To help us out, please join the IRC channels.
