Sad day for Free Speech

Today I join the rank of thousands other blogger in our mourning for ThinkSecret. I heard about it once in a while and I am not a fan of it, I still feel a sense of sadness that it has to close to settle a lawsuit it has with Apple.

I can see it make sense for Nick Ciarelli, its publisher. I do wish him well and is happy for him that he can now put the lawsuit behind. 

Nonetheless, rightly or wrongly, this suit has a feel that a big company uses lawsuit to silent critics. The whole thing degenerated into not about who is morally on the right side, but a tussle of financial power and the poorer party loses.
