“Domscheit-Berg speaks with the authority that few others posess.”
“For citizens around the globe who are attracted to WikiLeak’s promise of transparency but distressed by the illiberal excesses and reckless behavior of its founder, Domscheit-Berg provides an invaluable vision of a genuinely neutral technology for whistle-blowers. And he reminds us of the danger of concentrating power in the hands of one man, whose secretive organization became the mirror image of the powerful institutions he sought to oppose.”
—Jeffrey Rosen, The Washington Post
