If you haven't been keeping up with the news, I guess you won't know that Julian Assange is being charged for sexual assault. That doesn't really matter, what matters is who he is.
I had no idea who he was until a couple weeks ago and upon wiki-ing him and floating around the interweb, he's like.. a superhero. A real-life internet hacker and activist. The list of things he has uncovered is endless and really amazing. I mean, some things he is bringing to surface seem wayy too political.. in that his unveiling's seem sort of dangerous sometimes, but it's still pretty stellar.
