AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Fugitive WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says his living situation is a bit like prison — with a more lenient visitor policy.

Speaking over Skype from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Assange also hinted that new leaks are coming from WikiLeaks. But he's giving no specifics on what these might be.

Assange, who has been confined to the embassy since June 2012, discussed government surveillance, journalism and the situation in Ukraine on Saturday in a streaming-video interview beamed to an audience of 3,500 attendees of the South By Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas.

NSA leaker Edward Snowden will appear remotely Monday, speaking from Moscow where he's living in temporary asylum.
