In detail

Before WikiLeaks, Domscheit-Berg worked for companies in the IT and transport industry specialising in network design and security. In 2010, Domscheit-Berg started a website called "OpenLeaks" with the intention of being more transparent than WikiLeaks, but 2 years later he decided to focus on spreading information and expertise on how to set up and run leak websites rather than directly facilitating leaks themselves. An explosive book about his experience and separation from WikiLeaks was released in 2011, entitled 'Inside WikiLeaks' and translated into 23 languages.
