Leave it to our friends at Boing Boing to present this hilarious "WikiWecap" video, a rapid-fire rundown of the juiciest details of the WikiLeaks diplomatic crisis. Joe Sabia, of the creative collective Whirled, uses rapid fire imagery and a whole lot of Google Earth to synopsize the craziness better than anyone we've seen. And though he definitely makes it all sound as petty as most people assume it is, watching this will definitely give you ammo to stick it to those snooty Economist readers at the next cocktail party.
"As cascades of copious leaks crash down upon us," says Boing Boing, "there is hope in an entertaining and educational flashcap that can serve good to the Internet community."
They say this is "Episode 1." Here's hoping we get a WikiLeaks diplomatic-pouch dump — and an accompanying Wecap from Whirled and Boing Boing — every two to three months.
