For the Twitter newbies and generally modestly clueless don't be shy to search for the answers here:

Twitter tutorials at youtube, it couldn't be easier.

For archival purposes, I set up a 'paper' (The #wlfind Daily) on paper.li -- http://paper.li/NeilPaynter/1314417921


I'm a bit technologically impaired, so if anyone has suggestions for improvements, please advise!

Hi Neil, that's great! I am very excited about your cable newspaper!! :smile:

On a feedback note, just a question about the economy, business, education tabs. Are they there by default? I thought they would provide cables related to each topic but I just saw it's not the case. Sometimes it gives you the option to change titles on the template??

Let me know !

The categories are defaults. All the content is machine-generated, so the appropriateness is spotty. If you look in "Environment" for example, you are more apt to find a cable about pollution - but it's just probabilities. I can reduce the number of categories, but I am concerned it would end up even more of an undifferentiated mass. The process proves that, so far, only humans can edit well.

If there is one for Greece, I am happy to translate into Greek and post on the Greek board. :)

Re: Cablegate/Greece

I am trying to think how could this work. The scale is huge, where to concentrate? I have often read several cables from Athens  at wikileaks.org or .ch and it is mind boggling. There are a few Greek cables appearing on WLfind, maybe I should concentrate on those.

At www.skai.gr ( cooperation with Aftenposten). they havea dedicated area where they publish the cables in English with a small paragraph in Greek summarizing the content. They have published around 50 articles so far. The summaries offer no analysis or critical commentary. Here is the link:

http://wikileaks.folders.gr/main?locale=el

Also the Press Project http://www.thepressproject.gr/searchlab.php lists 2224 cables relating to Greece and Cyprus. It is purely a search engine

The same site has 14 articles(in additin to some other WL related ones) with analysis based on the cables in Greek. http://www.thepressproject.gr/cablegate/tpplist.php

I will go round looking for other publications that already exist and then see what should the Greek topic contain, list of publications/articles and where to find them? are the cables in Greek/English? pick up a few that appear to have made the headlines already and put them here with commentary? search for ad hoc news? hmmm... I bit more thought must go into this. But for now, goodnight
