Steven Hobbis - MA Show

"Throughout my Masters study, I have explored the ethical, diplomatic and political power Internet communities have and the way they choose to use this power. In my research one name kept cropping up: Julian Assange, who gained notoriety in the 1990s in his involvement with the ‘Cypherpunk’ movement." said Steven

"My project concentrates on the international controversy Wikileaks has caused, as well as looking into the man behind the organisation. Advocates of Assange praise the organisation for its attitude towards political transparency, information ethics and historical recording. Assange believes a civilisation is able to advance through an intellectual record, chronicling a nation’s development and uses this to legitimate his activities. Through publishing these highly sensitive documents, Assange has become one of the most controversial figures in the world and I explore the significance and complexities of the Wikileaks case as well as tracing the rise and fall of Assange."
