WikiLeaks will soon have a rival in online whistleblowing, with a former deputy to Julian Assange launching a site called OpenLeaks.
Daniel-Domscheit Berg says that OpenLeaks will be more transparent than WikiLeaks, Reuters reported.
WikiLeaks, the website that publishes confidential documents, jumped to a Swiss domain name after hackers attacked its American domain.
The attacks prompted the American domain name provider, EveryDNS, to withdraw service, The Associated Press said.
Despite all the media fervor over WikiLeaks massive document dump of decades of U.S. diplomatic correspondence, the leaked material hasn't revealed anything new. But while it may not harm national security, the leak could deal a serious blow to mainstream efforts to increase government transparency.
