“Years before the U.S. government’s assault on free speech escalated into the indictment against the WikiLeaks founder, the mysterious creator of Bitcoin recognized the potential fate that would befall the world’s first global Fourth Estate. “ – Nozomi Hayase
Another excellent write up from Nozomi Hayase & Bitcoin Magazine, on the plight of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange & the injustice of his extradition. It is an astonishing thing to see how many world changing systems, technologies, and institutions found their beginnings in a tiny group of mathematicians & activists who found a commonality on the internet around the principle of free speech, sharing ideas on a virtually unknown mailing list of self-proclaimed “cypherpunks.” Who knew how much it would shape our world?
