What’s up with wikileaks? Updated: the ’09 F9 effect’ strikes again…!

What’s going on with wikileaks? It had some interesting stuff, including a satellite computation thingy that you could use to figure out where all the US military satellites are, their foot prints, etc. , and then it went…poof?

UPDATE:

Well courtesy of slashdot, now we know what’s going on:

DragonFire1024 writes “Wikinews.org — The Wikileaks website, which publishes sensitive and censored material submitted by anonymous contributors, has experienced unprecedented levels of Internet traffic today through public interest. This interest has caused the website’s servers to be unable to meet the enormous demand of over 164 gigabytes of download traffic within twenty-four hours, leading the site to be temporarily inaccessible.”

We should thank Bank Julius Baer for their efforts in greatly increasing the visibility and readership of wikileaks. The have contributed greatly to wikileaks!

Reminds me of one of the contributors to wikipedia, Patrick Ross.
