I wrote a how-to for the Wired wiki on creating a hyperlocal leak site such as JumboLeaks.
WikiLeaks has changed the way whistle-blowers, document leak sites, and media organizations operate. In its wake, other similar sites where users can anonymously submit documents are cropping up, many with a hyperlocal or topic-specific focus. Last week, The Wall Street Journal announced Safehouse; Al Jazeera has the Transparency Unit; Russia has Ruleaks; Tufts University even has JumboLeaks.
Leak sites, it seems, are here to stay. Here’s how to get one started.
