[Owasp-leaders] OWASP and WikiLeaks

I feel it's best for me not to have an opinion on WikiLeaks, at least not a
public opinion. That feeling worries me. But there's far too much political
pressure from one side and geek community pressure from the other. And, as
you might know, Sweden plays a special part in the show around Julian
Assange.

When it comes to OWASP the only thoughts I've had are along the lines of
what a non-profit foundation and it's members can be held accountable for.
OWASP is American and I work for it without knowing if I can be held
accountable for anything in the States. Not that I'm worried but the thought
has struck me.

Technology-wise I think onion routing networks are very interesting but I'd
rather keep that a non-political interest.

IMHO: OWASP should keep away from the WikiLeaks debate, at least as long as
the heat is on. I see nothing to gain and lots of potential trouble.
