The Daily Slash: December 7 2010

Oh my goodness it really WAS Chrome OS like we had the freaky feeling it would be this morning! Take a look at the full Google Chrome Event Re-Cap and Analysis by our man in the field Ben Bajarin who was there to see it all go down! Then head through the massive list of links below looking for the [CHROME] tag to see all the sweet stuff! Then you’re probably so Google crazy you’ll want more so you can click around over to our exclusive Google Nexus S Hands-On (with video and pics!) Then take a peek at our review of the [Advent Vega] tablet, review of the movie [Black Swan], and read how Julian Assange was arrested and denied bail today, followed by an open letter by a mass of big names to the Prime Minister of Austrialia.

In light of the current massive amount of important being placed on the WikiLeaks/Julian Assange situation, there’s been an open letter to the current Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard penned and signed by a slew of writers, publishers, academics, lawmakers and so forth, amongst them Professor Noam Chomsky (pictured in a piece of art by Shepard Fairey below), Helen Garner, and Adam Bandt. This is a clip from that letter:

“We believe this case represents something of a watershed, with implications that extend beyond Mr Assange and WikiLeaks. In many parts of the globe, death threats routinely silence those who would publish or disseminate controversial material. If these incitements to violence against Mr Assange, a recipient of Amnesty International’s Media Award, are allowed to stand, a disturbing new precedent will have been established in the English-speaking world.

In this crucial time, a strong statement by you and your Government can make an important difference.”
