The simple question of how to glean fact from fiction, or the entire dynamic of this in respect to politicking is a total mind-fuck in itself. In September, Assange was publicly accused of sexual assault by two Swedish women and authorities sought him for questioning.

It’s interesting to see what has been left out in this book and how it compares to the Guardian’s account. If you want to write a letter to the editor, please forward to letters globeandmail. Assange has also arranged the organization based on the same sort of model that other closed organization do, with most of the players blind to the larger picture think CIA of whatever action or agenda is being fulfilled.

Inside WikiLeaks, by Daniel Domscheit-Berg

Although this book offers a fair bit of interesting information on Wikileaks; the people involved, the set-up behind the scenes, some info on leaks that weren’t published, etc, Inside Wikileaks is essentially a vehicle for Daniel Domscheit-Berg’s bitter attacks on Assange and I told you wlkileaks statements. And Domscheit comes off in some passages as too ignorant to even understand Assange’s beliefs for example, I seem to recall that there was an irritating passage where Domscheit mocks Assange’s use of red light to help his sleep – even though this is standard chronobiology, that blue light influences melatonin secretion to retard the sleep cycle and keep one awake!

I give it 3 stars solely because it is a unique primary source about WikiLeaks; if this was not from a principal player, it would not be worth reading as wikleaks is shallow incomplete garbage.

It paints the story of wikileaks, and especially of Assange who is almost the personification of WLof his behavior, increasing paranoia and some stuff, which for me is just really weird.

This book has a lot to recommend it, the whole extraordinary phenomena that is WikiLeaks, and a fascinating glimpse into the individual that is Julian Assange, by the insider who lived it.

Its protagonist is one of the people responsible for running Wikileaks in its critical stages aroundstarting with when he, soon to become the deputy in Wikileaks, first met with Julian Assange, and ending in Assange’s arrest in Britain and the fallout in relationships and technology in Wikileaks itself.

He also chronicles the personal relationship between Assange and himself from Assange being his idol and philosophical genius to a rather unattractive, arrogant and self serving leader, paranoid about his team and making unpredictable decisions.


It seems counterintuitive to his own philosophy to do so, but it works in that he has set up an organization that can be a functional player on the political chessboard If one is to take a more neutral look, the book describes a dynamic of revolutionary-minded organization and a typical power struggle for leadership between a clearly sociopathic and narcisistic leader, and a deputy who suffers from an inferiority complex in relation to the said sociopath.
