OpenLeaks to debut soon

The whistle-blowing site WikiLeaks has found a rival project called OpenLeaks that will launch in a few weeks' time and will fully operate later this year, according to a report byThe Times of India.
According to former WikiLeaks spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg during his speech in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, "A small alpha phase test will begin in the next few weeks."
Domscheit-Berg further said, "A beta test phase will begin in the summer ... and we are looking at a full release towards the end of the year."
In contrast with the famous WikiLeaks that releases leaked documents directly online, the new secret-spilling site will serve as a channel to make leaks available to their partner organizations and media.
OpenLeaks--a not-for-profit organization--claims to be very neutral with all the services for free. The new whistle-blower will only serve to accept documents, and their sources will decide to whom they want to send the information to, Domscheit-Berg explained.
To maintain anonymity, whistle-blowers can submit information through the OpenLeaks section of various media organizations Web sites.
OpenLeaks do not see other whistle-blowing sites as competitors but as something that can aid it to create more solutions through exchange of knowledge and experience.
Domscheit-Berg believes that OpenLeaks will be more efficient. The site does not aim to be high-profile and will not publish documents of its own that will make it less susceptible to scrutiny.
