Media News - Tuesday, October 09, 2012
Confined to the Ecuadorean embassy in London after being granted asylum, the WikiLeaks founder has announced he is to publish a new book about the internet, freedom and what he terms "the resistance". The book, entitled Cypherpunks: Freedom and the Future of the Internet, will be published in paperback and electronically on 26 November, the US publisher OR Books told the New York Times. Three "cutting-edge thinkers and activists from the frontline of the battle for cyberspace" are listed as co-authors: US-based Jacob Applebaum, Jeremie Zimmermann from France and German Andy Muller-Maguhn. The text is largely based on a transcript of an interview Assange conducted with the three others for an episode of his TV show, The World Tomorrow, broadcast in June on the Russian state-funded channel RT, Zimmermann told the Guardian. But he said there would be "plenty of added content". (The Guardian)
