WikiLeaks Currently Homeless [Updated]

After being thrown out of the house by Amazon, WikiLeaks has now also been booted by its domain name service provider, EveryDNS. The service provider explained: "Wikileaks.org has become the target of multiple distributed denial-of-service attacks. These attacks have, and future attacks would, threaten the stability of the EveryDNS.net infrastructure, which enables access to almost 500,000 other websites." Thus, the account has been terminated. But who will take the organization in now, all shabby and beleaguered? Will WikiLeaks start a Tumblr, or live only in the streets and in the New York Times? [Gawker] Updated: That was quick: WikiLeaks has found a taker, switching over to a Swiss domain name, wikileaks.ch, for now. The company tweeted early Friday morning: "WikiLeaks moves to Switzerland."
