Next meeting: Wikileaks, 16th of March

Thanks to everyone who put some effort into Judith Butler and participated in what turned out to be quite a spirited discussion.

For the next meeting we decided we'd like to do something a bit different and thought wikileaks would make an interesting topic.

The plan was to find a few articles around the issues of wikileaks as a current phenomena, arguments around transparency and power (one of Assange's arguments is that the more power a group wields the more transparent it needs to be) and effects the leaks are having, particularly in places like Tunisia and Egypt.

So far Zizek and Piliger have been put forward, and they'll be a some other reading selected too.
