Julian Assange: Why the world needs WikiLeaks

Earlier today, Julian Assange on being released in London, reminded the world of others besides him: "During my time in solitary confinement in the bottom of a Victorian prison I had time to reflect on the conditions of those people around the world also in solitary confinement, also on remand, in conditions that are more difficult than those faced by me. Those people also need your attention and support" (reminded me of all the powerless undertrials languishing in our prisons).

Assange had talked in July to TED's Chris Anderson about how the site operates, what it has accomplished -- and what drives him. The interview includes graphic footage of a recent US airstrike in Baghdad.
