An exposé of the “World’s Most Dangerous Website” from a former WikiLeaks insider

The basis for the movie The Fifth Estate (starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange), this eye-opening account by Daniel Domscheit-Berg, the former spokesman of WikiLeaks, reveals never-disclosed details about the inner workings of the increasingly controversial organization that has struck fear into governments and business organizations worldwide and prompted the Pentagon to convene a 120-man task force.

Under the pseudonym Daniel Schmitt, Domscheit-Berg was the effective No. 2 at WikiLeaks and the organization’s most public face, after Julian Assange. In this book, he reveals the evolution, finances, and inner tensions of the whistleblower organization, beginning with his first meeting with Assange in December 2007. He also describes what led to his September 2010 withdrawal from WikiLeaks, including his disenchantment with the organization’s lack of transparency, its abandonment of political neutrality, and Assange’s increasing concentration of power.

What has been made public so far about WikiLeaks is only a small fraction of the truth. With Domscheit-Berg’s insider knowledge, he is uniquely able to tell the full story. A computer scientist who worked in IT security prior to devoting himself full-time to WikiLeaks, he remains committed to freedom of information on the Internet. Today he is working on a more transparent secret-sharing website called OpenLeaks, developed by former WikiLeaks people, to be launched in early 2011.

was an abject failure and didn't really even pass one year online and wasn't without it's own controversy

... here in Brazil for the International Free Software Forum (FISL). I was the one that did the invitation and helped him navigate our environment at the city of Porto Alegre (RS). He seems to be a trustfully champion of freedom and privacy. His efforts with Openleaks did not enjoy the funds from people like J. Soros - as was (ans still is) the case of Wikileaks.
Assange is just controlled and managed dissent to alleviate the pressure, with some sparks of rebellion to add flavor...

It sounds like you're saying Soros funds Wikileaks. Considering they released lots of material extremely damaging to Soros, why would he fund them?
