    Transparency is a beautiful thing, and no doubt why the framers of the constitution were so intent on free speech.

    Yet it was shocking to see how many folded up Wikileaks tent for them and how quickly and with how little real substance to support their decision. That’s been the first thing I’ve seen yet that gave me pause about the centralization that the Cloud brings.

    So, your transparency is a good thing. Pray it isn’t offset by the trend to centralize in Clouds that may not be so generous to transparency.

    Happy New Year,

    Bob Warfield
