Why the “wiki” in WikiLeaks?


This video is an excerpt from from a forum Julian Assange participated in when he was in Berkeley in April of this year. In this brief clip he explains the original idea behind WikiLeaks (and why the “wiki” in the name). The big take away for me:

“In fact, people write about things, in general (if it’s not part of their career) because they want to display their values to their peers, who are already in the same group. Actually, they don’t give a fuck about the material.”
