Julian Assange and wikileaks have posted 3 hashes to their twitter only for a “state actor” to cut his internet access at the Ecuadorian embassy. Each of these keys are thought to be used to verify file integrity of some future dump of files. Shit is getting crazy here.
These are the keys they tweeted out. Some speculate that it is a “dead man switch” that will dump everything Wikileaks has in the case that Assange is killed. Others speculate that it means that there is some damning evidence about to drop.
A key factor in the latter of those theories is the definition of what a “pre-commitment” is. ” a strategy in which a party to a conflict uses a commitment device to strengthen its position by cutting off some of its options to make its threats more credible”
Basically put, hes putting this stuff out there that his revelations may just be damaging to him personally, but it also evens the playing field as the evidence is just to condemning to ignore.
I’m interested in what comes of all this.
