Julian Assange on OKCupid?

Is this a legitimate profile of the founder of Wikileaks?

If it is, he should be tried for crimes against Photoshop for this profile photo.

Just saw this on CNN's website. Must be fresh as I'm the first o comment. Be prepared, blogger comrade, your blog's gonna get a lot of hits.

It seems a lot like this could be our man Julian Assange. If the account was really created in 2006, I'm not sure how it could be faked.

Then again, anything's possible I suppose.

Intriguing find!

It’s weird that CNN actually combs blogger for news…

Julian Assange is a real revolutionary. All information is public. All copyrights, trademarks and patents are a violation of evolution through the free exchange of ideas.

OMFG! I happen to have an OKCupid account of my own, so I logged in after clicking the link. The photos are indeed those of Julian Assange.

I can't believe that Assange used the name "Harry Harrison" -- That's the name of a legendary DJ of the '60s and '70s on New York's WABC Radio before it switched from Top-40 to talk in 1982.

Fascinating. It's strange that CNN jacked your story. I suppose not. Claps none the less for detective work.

I did the CNN tour in Atlanta. They are lazy. They don't actually dig up stuff.

Anyway, can't wait to find the some smoking gun in this. I mean, he sounds like a normal single guy.

Thanks for making him human.

wow, he is human...most people I know seem to be into online dating nowadays. I'm not sure about the write-up on CNN now though which seems to me quite derogatory, and that is insulting a lot of people if they are suggesting that this is a bad thing.
