Former Wikileaks insider and spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg authors an expose of the "World's Most Dangerous Website."

In an eye-opening account, 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, prompting the Pentagon to convene a 120-person task force. Under the pseudonym Daniel Schmitt, Domscheit-Berg was the effective Number 2 at Wikileaks and the organization's public face, after Julian Assange. In this book, he reveals the evolution, finances, and inner tensions of the whistleblower organization, beginning with this 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.

About the author (2011)

DANIEL DOMSCHEIT-BERG, under the pseydonym Daniel Schmitt, was the effective Number 2 at WikiLeaks, and was the organization's spokesman and most public face after Julian Assange. A computer scientist who worked primarily in IT security for several multinational companies prior to devoting himself full-time to WikiLeaks, Domscheit-Berg remains committed to freedom of information and transparency on the internet. He is currently working on a more transparent secret-sharing website called OpenLeaks, developed by former WikiLeaks staffers, which will be launched in 2011.
