Cypherpunks – Freedom and the future of the Internet (eBook)


A book by Julian Assange, Jacob Appelbaum, Andy Muller-Maguhn, Jeremie Zimmermann

The harassment of WikiLeaks and other Internet activists, together with attempts to introduce anti-file sharing legislation such as SOPA and ACTA, indicate that the politics of the Internet have reached a crossroads. In one direction lies a future that guarantees, in the watchwords of the cypherpunks, ΓÇ£privacy for the weak and transparency for the powerfulΓÇ¥; in the other lies an Internet that allows government and large corporations to discover ever more about internet users while hiding their own activities. Assange and his co-discussants unpick the complex issues surrounding this crucial choice with clarity and engaging enthusiasm.
