julian assange and wikileaks profile in the new yorker

I've posted this link before, but I want to highlight and recommend it again. In the June issue of the New Yorker magazine, there was a long, fascinating profile of Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks is the organization that released the "Collateral Murder," video, which showed US soldiers in Iraq firing on and killing civilians, including two Reuters journalists.

It's quite an amazing story, also the kind of meaty profile that makes me salivate as a writer, an assignment I could only dream of. But I'm glad somebody is getting paid for this kind of work.
