Former WikiLeaks insider and spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg
authors an exposé of the “World’s Most Dangerous Website.”
In an eye-opening account, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, the former
spokesman of WikiLeaks, reveals never-disclosed details about the inner
workings of the increasingly controversial organization that has struck fear
into governments and business organizations worldwide and prompted the Pentagon
to convene a 120-man task force.
Under the pseudonym Daniel Schmitt, Domscheit-Berg was the
effective No. 2 at WikiLeaks and the organization’s most public face, after
Julian Assange. In this book, he reveals the evolution, finances, and inner
tensions of the whistleblower organization, beginning with his first meeting
with Assange in December 2007. He also describes what led to his September 2010
withdrawal from WikiLeaks, including his disenchantment with the organization’s
lack of transparency, its abandonment of political neutrality, and Assange’s
increasing concentration of power.
What has been made public so far about WikiLeaks is only a
small fraction of the truth. With Domscheit-Berg’s insider knowledge, he is
uniquely able to tell the full story. A computer scientist who worked in IT
security prior to devoting himself full-time to WikiLeaks, he remains committed
to freedom of information on the Internet. He is now working on a more
transparent secret-sharing website called OpenLeaks, developed with other
former WikiLeaks people. Download and start listening now!
