Julian Assange is the editor in chief of WikiLeaks. In 2010 he won Time magazine's 'Reader's Choice Person of the Year' poll and the Sydney Peace Prize, and was named Le Monde's 'Man of the Year'. He has also been awarded the Amnesty International 'UK Media Award' and the Sam Adams Award for 'Integrity in Intelligence'. In February 2011, his organisation, WikiLeaks, was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize after publishing three of the biggest leaks of classified information in history: the Afghan War Diaries, the Iraq War Logs and Cablegate. He is the co-author, with Suelette Dreyfus, of one previous book, Underground: Tales of Hacking, Madness and Obsession from the Electronic Frontier.
