Julian Assange : "La vraie guerre, c'est la guerre de l'information" (The Guardian) La plupart des premiers “cypherpunks” [groupes de personnes intéressées par la cryptographie, l’ensemble des techniques de codage et de décodage de messages] étaient des militants libertariens de Californie.

Julian Assange : "La vraie guerre, c'est la guerre de l'information" (The Guardian)
