  • A DFAT brochure pushing Australia's UN Security Council candidacy. Rudd's 'sorry' speech is reproduced at the end, but without his name on it... (Thanks Danielle.)
  • More coverage of our Madeleine Awards from Foreign Policy's Turtle Bay blog and from L'actualité.
  • Australian blogs on defence and security issues are quite rare, so it's pleasing to see a new one emerge. This one is by occasional Interpreter contributor Natalie Sambhi.
  • Further to yesterday's post about the White House's harnessing of digital tools, here's a recent video conference between Administration officials and Chinese bloggers. (Thanks Malcolm.)
  • WikiLeaks: a riveting account by NY Times executive editor Bill Keller. It is at once an eloquent defence of the publication of the leaks and a damning portrait of Julian Assange. (Thanks Michael.)
  • Southeast Asian navies continue to bulk up, and so does the Indian navy. (Thanks Malcolm.)
