WikiLeaks rival goes live


The breakaway leaking site formed by several WikiLeaks defectors has gone live early, ironically after the design of the site was leaked.

OpenLeaks, created by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange‘s former right-hand man, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, promises to be a more democratic organisation than WikiLeaks and plans to work with other organisations, including media, to publicly release documents, as opposed to publishing them itself.

Chat logs showed Domscheit-Berg accusing Assange of being autocratic and behaving like “some kind of emperor or slave trader”, failing to consult his team on important decisions.

Swedish press had reported at the time that the OpenLeaks launch was imminent but it has evidently been a harder task than first imagined.
