Digital Journal reported on the full series of Julian Assange's controversial talk show, "The World Tomorrow". In this fascinating series, Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, interviewed a range of highly controversial people from all over the world.
Episode 8 featured the "Cypherpunks", where Assange interviewed activists from the Cypherpunk movement. They discussed cyber threats, hacker attacks and laws which are officially aiming to tackle Internet piracy, but are, in fact, infringing on people's rights to online privacy.
Cypherpunks is a movement originating from Cypherpunks’ Electronic Mailing List, which was set up by activists aiming to improve Internet privacy and security through proactive use of cryptography. The movement has been active since the late 1980s. WikiLeaks is one of the many projects derived from Cypherpunks.
