Sydney: Notorious Internet hacking group has planned to set up their own Wikileaks-style website committed to political transparency, according to a report.
The site will be called Par:AnoIA, which stands for "Potentially Alarming Research: Anonymous Intelligence Agencies".
According to a Paranoia volunteer, the site aims to pick up where WikiLeaks apparently let the hackers down, by finding a better way to present large amounts of data that is appealing and easy for users to read.
“The reason no one cares about these leaks, as a general rule of thumb, is that they can’t do anything with [them],” the volunteer told Wired. “Basically, [we're] making it accessible to anyone that wants to do something with it, in a proper usable format,” The Herald Sun quoted the volunteer, as saying.
The volunteer said the purpose of the site was to get information out faster than the rollout WikiLeaks plans, which could take years. “I'm pretty sick of these 20-year-plans,” the report quoted the volunteer, as saying. According to the report, the site will accept submissions from Anonymous members and then design and present the content.
