Wikileaks’ James Bond Styled Secret Headquarters Revealed

If you thought Wikileaks is being operated out of a memory stick from a dinky cold basement by some sleep-deprived programmers ready to abandon their hideout at moment’s notice, think again. Recently pictures of the supposedly secret headquarters surfaced through a number of news sources – pictures that will blow your socks off. A headquarter located in a cave 100 feet below the ground in a former Cold War nuclear bunker futuristically redesigned to look like a set out of a James Bond movie.

The disused bunker turned datacenter was reopened in 2008 and redesigned by Swedish architects Albert France-Lanord. Complete with a 'floating' conference room, suspended glass corridors, lunar landscape flooring, designer furniture, and even, intriguingly, German U-boat engines as back-up generators. “All that is missing is the bleached-blond Assange himself, stroking a white cat”, writes The Daily Mail.

The bunker which could reportedly withstand a nuclear attack, vast cave, also houses dozens of computer servers used as storage by many companies.

Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
