Like many I share a cautious attitude toward the personal attacks Domscheit-Berg makes on Assange. However, the narrative he tells reasonably explains Wikileaks' unfortunate fracturing. I was persuaded by the read to believe that the goals of Wikileaks are sound and that the project does represent a necessary revolution in transparency, which is big because two years ago, at the time of Cablegate, I wanted Assange dead. I find it unfortunate that Domscheit-Berg's decentralized approach with Openleaks appears not to be working, if the lack of dynamism on the current website is any indication. In all this is a good read that will infuriate those of us who were skeptical of Assange's personal vision from the beginning, even while it persuades that in a more perfect world Wikileaks would be the way the media is ultimately supposed to operate.
