    Links to Jake’s slides would be appreciated, since some of the information the talk alludes to is purely visual.

    Emmanuel and the “Off the Wall/Hook have been announcing that Julian Assange would be at HOPE for months. I’m sure Julian could easily discourse from an undisclosed location, possibly within NYC, or even just over the Canadian border and not appear in person. if it is required.

    “Spot the Fed” should be extra fun this year.

    I was lucky enough to be watching live streaming of this year’s TED Global conference this week, where Julian was a surprise guest speaker on Friday. Great stuff! Can’t wait for that video to be up on TED.com!

    @Malgwyn, If Adriam Lamo or anyone from Wired is there, then you’ve found the Fed.

    did the FBI arrest the entire boingboing staff too? It’s been awful quiet around here…

    there’s no need to dramatize the situation. i feel like boingboing is just falling for the hype. julian assage is no saint.

    He very probably never planned to speak there. This looks like a rumor that was spread as a cover for his actual appearance at TEDGlobal in Oxford on Friday.

    I drove past him on Hythe Bridge street in Oxford this afternoon at 1 PM UK time, i.e 8 hours ago, so he was either on his way to get a train to Heathrow, or he’s in the UK rather than NYC.
