it was amazing

A history of WikiLeaks and the cypherpunks movement it chronicles the development over time of the movement. It starts in the 70s to the development of cypherpunk and then gets into WikiLeaks and the current reissance of the WikiLeaks movement. It basically shows the acceleration the last few years of development in the anarchic utopia vision of the original cyberpunks. I enjoyed it as it provided a very journalistic assessment of the movement and where it is going.
