>> After the second day of Wikileaks, Chinese officials based in Europe said that they support the "peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula" under Seoul's control after North Korea has behaved like a "spoiled child." The American government is pissed about these leaks, but the pressure seems to be put on China and Saudi Arabia. (the Guardian)

>> Wikileaks founder Julian Assange tells Forbes that his upcoming leaks released early next year "could take down a bank of two...like the Enron emails." Meanwhile, while the U.S. is investigating whether they can press charges against Assange, an Australian citizen based in Sweden, under the Espionage Act, Ecuador has offered Assange residency. This is what Assange thinks of the U.S. pressing charges. (Forbes, the Christian Science Monitor, BBC News)

>> A 15-year-old boy carrying a loaded handgun held 23 of his classmates and a teacher hostage at Marinette High School in northeast Wisconsin yesterday. The boy made no demands and the hostages were released unharmed, but the gunman shot himself once police entered the classroom. (the New York Times)

>> Because Netflix shockingly represents up to 20 percent of U.S. Internet traffic at peak times, Comcast has started to charge video streaming companies extra fees. Lets all stream "30 Rock" a little more consciously now, okay? (the New York Times)

>> And finally: 71-year-old French electrician Pierre Le Guennec unearthed more than 270 previously unknown works by Pablo Picasso that were authenticated by the Picasso Administration. The collection is worth about $80 million, but now Le Guennec faces a lawsuit from Picasso's heirs who say he stole the work. Not such a bright idea! (CNN)
