ABSTRACT
The article discusses the release of thousands of classified U.S. government documents by the website WikiLeaks, subsequent attacks on the website, and charges of sexual misconduct filed against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The large quantity of information involved, and its dissemination across the internet, are described as unprecedented. Assange is said to represent a subset of computer hacker culture known as cypherpunk. A discussion of whether WikiLeaks will help to increase government transparency, or sabotage efforts at diplomacy is included.
