al-Jazeera

al-Jazeera has gotten a bad rap in this country. This article on the formation of the al-Jazeera news organization is required reading for anyone trying to make sense of wartime information flows. Brought to my attention thanks to Dave Farber's IP list.

4/4 Update: Akamai and al-Jaseera contract disolves. Akamai certainly would have helped al-Jazeera deal with the traffic and attacks the site was dealing with. No details on why Akamai pulled the contract.
