Cypherpunks by Julian Assange with Jacob Applebaum, Andy Muller-Maguhn, and Jeremie Zimmermann
Cypherpunks is a very interesting short book in the format of being a script of these four leaders in technology discussing the future of the internet. This discussion is very informed in terms of their deep technical knowledge yet in the context of the continuum lying between the great freedom the internet gave the world with access to information and it’s potential to turn the world into a surveillance police state.
This surveillance train left the station years ago and has progressed significantly in recent years. This is major issue despite so many people remaining ignorant on the issues. This discussion is timely and of great importance. The direction we are headed can only be altered with innovation and technology to change how the current technology architecture exist and is deployed.
A very interesting and thought provoking read so as usual Hit The Books, They Don’t Hit Back!
