With a two-day program filled with tech thought leaders and innovators, there was one subject which seemed to consistently rise about the rest and dominate so many of the conversations at LeWeb. What was it? Wikileaks.
While I didn't go into LeWeb expecting to hear so many opinions about Wikileaks - it's mission, it's founder, it's future - it shouldn't have been a surprise. The issues surrounding Wikileaks and it's release of mountains of sensitive information exist at the intersection of privacy, safety, security, technology, social media and politics. With such a smart, savvy and international crowd, seemingly everyone had and interest and strong opinions on the matter.
