Julian Assange the 39 year-old founder of whistleblower website, WikiLeaks, is a mysterious personality. His mother tells him to be ‘very intelligent’. An Australian hacker has a record of being arrested on 18 hacking charges, and wanted by Interpol for sexual charges.
Julian explains – “Why the world needs WikiLeaks” in a talk with TED’s Chris Anderson. In th e19 minutes video he explains how the site operates, what it has accomplished, and what drives him.
In this contest, a video of CNN interview is posted below, in which, he walked away after being asked about the incident he didn’t want to talk about. This is a perfect example on how he detest talking about personal life.
