He is back!

I was starting to miss him.

But here is Assange, “in a rare public appearance”:

Assange: The Internet Could Create a “Totalitarian Spying Regime”
Assange said the web could allow greater government transparency, but also gave authorities their best ever opportunity to monitor and catch dissidents.

“The internet is the “greatest spying machine the world has ever seen” and is not a technology that necessarily favours the freedom of speech, the WikiLeaks co-founder, Julian Assange, has claimed in a rare public appearance.”

So, the Internet can be used for evil purposes, as well as for good ones.

Groundbreaking. [He must have been reading Evgeny Morozov's highly publicized The Net Delusion - The Dark Side of Internet Freedom during his free time.]

 

“(…) he told students at Cambridge University. Hundreds queued for hours to attend.”

So, is he on a speaking tour now? [after the book deals...  he seems to be a busy man:)]

And I thought he was under some “strict” house arrest – http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-20025866-503543.html – [although I admit I haven't been following developments with the extradition decision that closely].
