Moment of truth

Julian Assange will soon learn if he is to be extradited to Sweden, but the future for WikiLeaks and whistleblowers everywhere is far from resolved.

Patrick Hayes, Spiked Magazine

The ‘unauthorised autobiography’ of the Wikileaks founder reveals little that we didn’t already know: he’s an apolitical computer nerd with a conspiracy theorist’s view of the world.

Julian Assange: Internet revolutionary



Julian Assange: Internet revolutionary


RIA Novosti commentator Dmitry Babich




Netwit 2.01’s view: Assange’s importance is in decline, though once his fracas with the Swedish authorities is over he will be able to get on the circuit and make a lot of money talking up his ideas. He’ll become the slightly passée cyberpunk philosopher others defer to.

Assange’s website is inoperable as a whistle-blower drop-box. He has no means of re-constituting it without what his ex-buddy Daniel D-B took out of the system.

His legacy will be the initial impact of WikiLeaks and his theoretical essay[s], not the WikiLeaks website, which seems to be stuck in the mud, being rapidly superseded by different ideas about how to encourage whistleblowers to report corporate and governmental malpractices.
