Happy anniversary, Julian Assange. Well, it's not happy per se, but tomorrow marks two years that he has spent stuck in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, which is surrounded at all hours by police. It is a good day to look back on the accomplishments of his information-leaking organization and reflect on how large an impact Assange has had and continues to have on issues of government, journalism, and whistle-blowing. Zenon Evans contends that perhaps the most meaningful and liberating revelation from WikiLeaks is that individuals who believes in freedom of information can wield a surprising amount of power for change, even if they're cornered, imprisoned, or forced into exiled by the authorities that react against them.
