The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Aussie launches 'business version of WikiLeaks'

News.com.au, by Jane Lee, December 16, 2010

  • Aussie retailer launches Tradeleaks.com
  • Users post anonymous tips about dodgy firms
  • Information on website is unreliable, says critic

AN AUSTRALIAN online electronics retailer has launched what he calls the business world's answer to WikiLeaks.

The site allows internet users to post documents and tip-offs
about dodgy business practices anonymously / File
The site, Tradeleaks.com, allows internet users to post documents and tip-offs about dodgy business practices anonymously. Users can then rate and comment on the reliability of each leak.

Twenty-eight year old Ruslan Kogan, who featured on this year's BRW Young Rich list with a wealth of $29 million, made Tradeleaks.com available this morning.

A few hours after the website went live, there were ten allegations posted on the site about a mix of businesses and retailers.

'Fan' alleged that Foxtel* has an internal policy to offer one month’s free service to customers calling to "disconnect" their cable TV subscription.

Anonymous claimed that in his or her experience working at a "big TV retailer", he or she will: "play with the color (sic) settings on the TVs to ensure that the TVs that will earn us the most commission look better than the others."

"MY ADVICE TO CONSUMERS: If you are ever in a store buying a TV, ensure that you set all the color settings to "Factory Default" when comparing," said the post.

Mr Kogan said he hoped the site would eventually be filled with trade secrets and eventually become "bigger than WikiLeaks."

Mr Kogan denied that the website is an attempt to grab publicity for himself and his other businesses: "Someone could go on and post something [negative] about Kogan or my other business interests - we’re going to be judged on our transparency too… if it was [a publicity stunt] we’d put the Kogan logo on it."

"It's going to create a better shopping environment for consumers," Mr Kogan said.

"What this does is put all of the [internet’s business rumours and tip-offs] in one place; you're giving people one central place to say: 'I've worked here and here and they made me do this behind closed doors'," he said.

Mr Kogan said users can "post a leak" on the site directly in a system that will regulate itself, amid critics' warnings that there is no guarantee the information posted on the site is true or that its users’ personal details will be protected.

The site, which does not require a user name or evidence to back up claims, asks only that people "post credible information, including source documents where possible, which they believe consumers need to know."

"We put the power in the consumers’ hands, we let people decide what’s relevant and what’s not, whether they believe it or not..." he said.

"We’re not policing it and will only remove posts if they’re defamatory…you can post anything you want."

Asked what sort of security the site provided tipsters, Mr Kogan replied: “We’ve got legal firms and teams and we won't put up with personal attacks on anyone.

"We're encouraging people to provide evidence about claims - whatever they have we encourage them to upload it."

'This is no WikiLeaks'

Paul Ducklin, the head of technology for technical support firm Sophos' Asia-Pacific region, said that the website is no different to millions of existing internet forums that expose businesses to the risk of being slandered and their users to the risk of being identified.

"It is possible in all of this that innocent people could get slandered or libelled," Mr Ducklin said.

He contrasted Tradeleaks with WikiLeaks, which has a team of experts that decide when and whether to publish confidential information it has obtained.

"You have absolutely no idea who’s behind [the information on Tradeleaks], no indication of what’s going up and what’s not, there is no privacy policy," said Mr Ducklin.

"There's almost an anti-guarantee that people can post anything and we’ll publish it.

"[It's almost as if they are saying:] 'We don’t care what it is, we just ask you not to put naughty stuff up and it's up to others to remove it.'"

*Foxtel is owned by News Corporation, which is the parent company of the publisher of news.com.au.
