Risk should be a boring movie. Sure, it's the latest documentary from Academy Award-winner Laura Poitras, but it's also about WikiLeaks. Haven't we all had enough of Julian Assange and his cadre of world-warping weirdos? The thing is, you've never seen Assange like this. You've never seen him up close and ugly. And that's exactly why you must see Risk.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
The woman involved in an eyewitness account of sexual misconduct by ex-Tor developer Jacob Appelbaum given to Gizmodo says her experience of the night in question is "entirely different".
New stories of Jacob Applebaum's alleged sexual misconduct have surfaced since the developer and well-known computer security and privacy advocate stepped down from his staff position at the Tor Project last week.
Jacob Appelbaum, a prominent advocate for digital privacy and security, last week stepped down from the Tor Project, where he worked as a paid employee, after he was accused of sexual assault. "These types of allegations were not entirely new to everybody at Tor; they were consistent with rumours some of us had been hearing for some time," Tor Project Executive Director Shari Steele wrote in a blog post about Appelbaum's resignation. "That said, the most recent allegations are much more serious and concrete than anything we had heard previously."
