I am going to read Edward Snowden’s memoir, “Permanent Record“.
I will never forget the moment on June 9, 2013, when I watched a video of a skinny, serious, unshaven man named Edward Snowden introduce himself to the world as the source of a series of blockbuster revelations about US spy agencies’ illegal surveillance of the global internet. Please, I thought, be safe. And Please, don’t turn out to be an asshole.
— Cory Doctorow
And I thought, why didn’t you think it through; you’ll never get away.
I was wrong. He knew it. Snowden was just too principled to let that stop him.
