General Notes

Public Intelligence is an international, collaborative research project aimed at aggregating the collective work of independent researchers around the globe who wish to defend the public’s right to access information.

This site is an attempt to compile and defend public information using software and methods which are open source and available to the public at large. It is our hope that by making such information available and demonstrating the power of a public resolved to inform itself, we may engender a more informed and proactive populace. Within our first two years of operation, we have already received more than twenty threats and takedown notices from government agencies and corporations around the world for publishing documents discovered via open source methods available to any member of the public. No information has ever been removed or censored.

Update 11th February 2012

Together with Cryptome.org and wikileaks.org this website is on the US State Department's open source media watchlist

Update 21st August 2011

According to their Twitter stream, they appear to be in the process of finding another web server location after "complaints":

publicintel Public Intelligence

  • Until our main site is back online, a complete mirror of all information is available via http://publicintelligence.info
  • Our experience with EuroVPS, in particular, has been extremely positive and we highly recommend them.
  • Both EuroVPS and Leaseweb have been supportive in the past and have provided us with excellent service. We thank them for that.
  • EuroVPS was not responsible for our service being terminated. It was a decision at Leaseweb, who EuroVPS uses for colocation.
  • There have reportedly been "complaints" about content on the site. That's all we know at this time.
  • The main site will likely be down for several days while it is being moved. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
  • Our server in the Netherlands has been shut down and we are being forced to move elsewhere . . .


Update 27th August 2011

They now seem to be back online with server hosting in Luxembourg

Unfortunately this Wordpress based weblog is tracking visitors and confidential encrypted web form submitters via the commercial USA based Quantserve / Quantcast tracking javascript / web bug graphics, thereby betraying web visitor IP addresses and web browser details to a commercial USA web tracking company, and therefore, on demand, also to the US Government.

Update 29th August 2011

PublicIntelligence.net now seem to have turned off the Quantserve web bug tracking, but have not acknowledged our warning to them about it.
