Julian Assange (born 3 July 1971) is the spokesman and editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, which is a website that posts news leaks. He started the website in 2006.[1] He was born in Australia, but has lived in several different countries. He also made a program called Rubberhose to hide secret information in a specific way that protects against torture.

Assange was the Readers' Choice for Time Person of the Year in 2010[2] after getting the most Internet votes. However, Mark Zuckerberg, who started Facebook, won the actual award.
