WikiLeaks: A Critical Catalyst, But for What End?
by Nancy K. Herther
Launched in October 2006 with the byline of "we open governments," WikiLeaks has positioned itself in the eye of more than one media storm in the past 4 years. The site presents itself as a "non-profit media organization dedicated to bringing important news and information to the public. We provide an innovative, secure, and anonymous way for independent sources around the world to leak information to our journalists. We publish material of ethical, political and historical significance while keeping the identity of our sources anonymous, thus providing a universal way for the revealing of suppressed and censored injustices."

Review of the Year 2010 and Trends Watch 2011
by Paula J. Hane
The year 2010 saw the emergence of the iPad, the Android, and apps—lots and lots of apps. The market for mobile computing skyrocketed this year.
