Remember that Times story about the homeless Brooklyn girl named, simply, Dasani? Something bothered people about it.

The editor of @the_intercept (he used to run @Gawker) a mister @johnjcook explains to readers what he is doing.
"When we are prepared to publish those stories we will publish them. When we are not, we will be silent for a time."
"At crucial moments, the 'networked' part of the surveillance story kept it from being contained by the authorities."

Well, @felixsalmon on Ezra Klein, Nate Silver and the wonkosphere is so far the best thing I've read on the subject.
