For several hours the besieged leader of the worlda€™s most famous insurgent publishing organization and the billionaire head of the worlda€™s largest information empire locked horns. The two men debated the political problems faced by society, and the technological solutions engendered by the global networka€”from the Arab Spring to Bitcoin. They outlined radically opposing perspectives: for Assange, the liberating power of the Internet is based on its freedom and statelessness. For Schmidt, emancipation is at one with US foreign policy objectives and is driven by connecting non-Western countries to American companies and markets. These differences embodied a tug-of-war over the Interneta€™s future that has only gathered force subsequently. When Google Met WikiLeaks presents the story of Assange and Schmidta€™s encounter. Both fascinating and alarming, it contains an edited transcript of their conversation and extensive, new material, written by Assange specifically for this book, providing the best available summary of his vision for the future of the Internet.This is, to my mind, the real technical innovation of Bitcoina€”it has solved it by using some hash problems which enforce delay trees and then a delay time.
