Julian Assange's Work in Emacs

Julian Assange is also a emacs user. He wrote this package: http://quimby.gnus.org/s/change-windows-intuitively.el 〔local copy change-windows-intuitively.el〕.

Julian Assange's package indirectly have him credited in windmove.el and window.el, both are bundled in emacs. Quote:

;; Acknowledgments:
;;
;; Special thanks to Julian Assange (proff@iq.org), whose
;; change-windows-intuitively.el predates Windmove, and provided the
;; inspiration for it.  Kin Cho (kin@symmetrycomm.com) was the first
;; to suggest wrap-around behavior.  Thanks also to Gerd Moellmann
;; (gerd@gnu.org) for his comments and suggestions.
;; Predecessors to the below have been devised by Julian Assange in
;; change-windows-intuitively.el and Hovav Shacham in windmove.el.
;; Neither of these allow to selectively ignore specific windows
;; (windows whose `no-other-window' parameter is non-nil) as targets of
;; the movement.

Call describe-function on windmove-left to get to file location of windmove.el. In the same directory, you'll find window.el.
