A Computer Casanova: If you thought Julian Assange was creepy before, wait until you read his online-dating profile.

At this point, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange remains a bit of a shadowy figure, with many biographical details eluding the public’s view. But we do know this: The now-notorious Internet provocateur is quite libidinous, perhaps criminally so.

So it should come as no surprise that Assange may have sought sex and/or romance through the Internet, according to the evidence of a 4-year-old account on the dating site OkCupid.

Assange’s profile came up haphazardly, when it crossed the screen of a user of the social news website Reddit. The account — registered under the name “Harry Harrison,” which, as one Reddit user noted, was the name of a popular sci-fi writer in the ’70s and ’80s — hasn’t been logged into since 2006. Still, it contains a valuable cache of profile information and photos that are, well, quite Assange-y.
