Julian Assange was arested today in London after losing his political asylum from Ecuador => most likely due influence of the US
Still interested in the connection between Satoshi and Julian.
Whether or not he is a criminal is for the courts to decide, not the media and not us. As for my opinion I think Assange is a self aggrandizing useful idiot for the likes of Putin to use to undermine the open societies they both despise so much. Western style governments aren't perfect but even without his reckless disregard for the consequences of the information he obtained and released they are a lot more accountable than any other form of government on this planet. That Zuckerberg got rich by expanding the game of "hot or not" into a global personal data mine does not make him a criminal either, just an amoral, opportunistic creep. Comparing the two really does not elevate either of them above the muck they so richly deserve.
All of his wikileaks activities aside, I mean, who treats their host with disrespect that you get kicked out - when the police are waiting outside? While he may have a good desire for self-preservation, he doesn't seem very smart (or polite).
Yeah, I was going to write about his ill-considered rudeness as well but I decided I had written enough. He reminds me of another attention needy narcissist.
