Julian Assange

Image for ASSANGE, Julian

Publisher, Journalist, Muckraker, Radical, Programmer, Entrepreneur, Cryptographer, Author.

First true internet radical; publisher and activist who used the internet to transform the relationship between the weak and the powerful.

Julian Assange is the face of WikiLeaks, the headline-making publishing organisation famous around the world for releasing secret information from corrupt governments, unaccountable corporations, occupying militaries and secretive international trade deals.

Founder, philosopher, editor-in-chief and original financier, his name and the WikiLeaks brand are inseparable, and both have proven indomitable over the organisation’s 10 year publishing history.
