Submission + - How to implement a Deadman? 1

Tiger4 writes: Julian Assange of Wikileaks fame has been rumored to have many more documents than have already been released. Further, some of these are rumored to be held back from release by a deadman's switch, a device that activates when the person controlling it has apparently died, disappeared, or stopped providing input. The question then is, how to implement a deadman? What would be the best way to reliably ensure distribution of information after you are gone?

Submission + - Wikileaks Rehosted (

Tiger4 writes: It was widely reported, (Associated Press, Washington Post, The Guardian, etc) that has kicked Wikileaks off its cloud of servers. Apparently members of the US Congress brought pressure to bear on Amazon and they succumbed. The US Constitution's First Amendment, which governs official actions of the government but not private actions, was mentioned as a protection for Wikileak's recent publication of embarrassing documents.
