Get ready for a photo of Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno lounging in bed with a giant platter of lobster.
Julian Assange is facing US extradition after his arrest at the Ecuadorian embassy in London after an almost seven-year diplomatic stalemate.

Edward Snowden might be hiding out in Russia these days, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t keeping a close eye on what’s cracking over in the U.S.
The Democratic National Convention was thrown into turmoil by another email leak, and of course that timing wasn’t by chance.
Assange vindicated. Zuma’s week of hell. Scores dead in massive Taiwan Earthquake. Rolene Struass wedding pic. Man shot dead at Dublin boxing weigh-in. Kid (11) shoots friend (8) dead. Salma Hayek’s inappropriate T-shirt. Blue Ivy and Apple BFFs forever.
Assange has been hanging out in the embassy for around three years – and now he could get his break. But charges against him are high and troublesome.
Communication is making such fast advances these days, one can barely keep up. Imagine the day your genius smartphone can hologram you to your friends across the world.
Julian Assange wants to be free. Of course, it’s not as easy as that. What’s going on at the Ecuadorian embassy in London?
Hidden in plain sight, with stringent and extremely cautious security measures and procedures, Edward Snowden continues to live in Russia. Wired recently managed to get the chance to interview him, in depth.
How often do you hear someone say something outlandish and justify it with the right to freedom of expression? The new Secrecy Bill in South Africa does make this somewhat challenging for media houses and journalists who have views that don’t 100% support the ruling party. For all of you who agree with the likes […]
Look, news is sometimes complicated and difficult understand. Sure, you’ve heard of this “Bradley Manning” guy. His name has been bandied about on campus, at a braai, or around the watercooler. You heard he was sentenced for espionage against the United States, but you’re not sure why, or how. That’s okay. Taiwanese animated news has […]
Finally we’re able to get a first look at what we can expect from the WikiLeaks movie The Fifth Estate. The film, that is based on real events, explores the corruption and deception that caused the Internet to go into a complete frenzy. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Stanley Tucci, Daniel Brühl, and Laura Linney, here is the synopsis […]
Bradley Manning is considered to be a hero by many, and a villain by others. He was the man responsible for leaking classified material he had obtained from US databases to WikiLeaks. Click through to read about the man that gave him up.
Just south of Stockholm in Sweden, lies a renovated nuclear bunker called Pionen White Mountains. It was decommissioned nearly 20 years ago by Sweden’s Civil Defense, and at one point, it became the brief home of WikiLeaks.
Zuma appointed to UN education panel. Malema claims innocence and demands an iPad to prove it. Hundreds of police guns lost. MTN to provide 4G before year-end, but not in Cape Town. Apple-Google Maps Talks Crashed Over Voice-Guided Directions.

WikiLeaks just won an important legal battle which will force Iceland’s Visa and MasterCard partner to resume processing donations to the organisation. This comes after transactions headed for the secret-sharing site were blocked in 2010.
Oh hey, that V-for-Vendetta-themed hacker collective is back, this time with a 1,7 GB lump of data that they claim “used to belong to the United States Bureau of Justice Statistics.” The file was uploaded to the Pirate Bay yesterday, and allegedly contains “internal emails, and the entire database dump.”
Because apparently having your own talk show for starting a thing on the internet isn’t enough, recent polling of Australia’s Labor Party suggests that the Wikileaks founder is reasonably likely to get elected to the Australian senate, should he choose to go ahead with plans to run.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s controversial new talk show is set to drop today at 13h30 South African time on a Russian digital news channel. Nothing this man does is not bent on overthrowing the way we look at our society and the world around us, so the first episode of The World Tomorrow should be a hefty serving of global illuminati conspiracy cray-cray realness. Check out Episode One, after the jump!
After decades of fighting innocent and unarmed civilians, Robert Mugabe is now reportedly battling with death in a Singapore hospital. Confidential info released by WikiLeaks last month said Mugabe has prostate cancer that has spread to other organs. According to the report, he was also urged by his physician to step down in 2008, but had ignored the advice.
Julian Assange has found a way to run for the Upper House of the Australian Senate, in spite of, you know, being detained under house arrest in Britain. Which makes sense, I guess. Along with Assange’s candidacy, WikiLeaks announced on Twitter that they’ll be running a nominee against the current Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.
Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier who leaked thousands of classified military documents, images and videos to Wikileaks has allegedly been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. Is he the most controversial candidate, and who else made the cut?
WikiLeaks is doing stuff that doesn’t involve Julian Assange’s career as a television personality – in this case leaking a cache of over 5 million internal emails from Stratfor, a “global intelligence” company. They reveal secret intelligence services provided to Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, among others.
The Simpsons are known for having the greatest variety in the people that guest star in their episodes. They can range from celebrities, political figures, even scientists such as Prof Stephen Hawking. As they approach their 500th episode, their special guest will be Julian Assange – founder of Wikileaks, and the first guest to appear on the show while still under house arrest.
It turns out publishing classified diplomatic files online isn’t all that lucrative! Whistle blowing site, WikiLeaks has announced that they’re pausing their publishing process to concentrate on raising funds. Julian Assange claims that the financial “blockade” mounted by Visa, MasterCard and other companies, has forced Wikileaks to “temporarily suspend its publishing operations and aggressively fundraise.”
Wikileaks is parceling out another bunch of diplomatic cables today, in case we’d forgotten about Julian Assange amidst all the other hubbub. Expect people to largely ignore the allegations of internal corruption and the details of John McCain’s conversations with that Gadaffi chap, and focus on the whole rape trial thing.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, is attempting to trademark his name for use in “public speaking services” and “entertainment services.” Personally I’d exercise a little more energy on the whole ‘I’m being extradited to Sweden for charges of rape and sexual assault,’ thing, but maybe this is more important.
While the Libyan leader stubbornly clings to power amidst the uprisings that are sweeping his country, we thought we would take the time to remind you just how crazy he is. And let’s just say, as far as tyrannical African dictators go, he’s up there with the best of them.
