Hi Simon, Christina & all,

Firstly, Thank you for inviting me to be part of the 'Contesting the 
Netopticon' discussion on Empyre.

At the end of Simon's concise and well written introduction. Wikileaks 
is mentioned as "turning the Panoptic gaze back upon the observer [...] 
significant counter-attack in what might be considered an asymmetric 
info-war. Before we settle in with exploring the most recently known 
news and spectacle of Wikileaks. I want to delve into a mix of art, 
legality, privatization of public space and surveillance, online and in 
physical space.

I am writing some examples right now and will post it up a bit later.

Wishing you well.
