Julian Assange of WikiLeaks has a mixed record of leadership, writes Adam Toren. On the one hand, Assange, "a cheap suit with a big vision," bootstrapped a highly influential worldwide organization; on the other, Assange let his ego and ethical failings get in the way of his organization's goals. "Interviewees agree that Assange changed after fame hit him, which is something you can't allow yourself to do," Toren writes.
