John Naughton on WikiLeaks | Technology | The Observer: "In the annals of the net, one of the sacred texts is John Gilmore's aphorism that 'the internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it'. Mr Gilmore is a celebrated engineer, entrepreneur and libertarian activist, who is regarded by the US Department of Homeland Security, the National Security Agency and men in suits everywhere as a pain in the ass. He was the fifth employee of Sun Microsystems, which meant that he made a lot of money early in life, and he has devoted the rest of his time to spending it on a variety of excellent causes."
