– From one of my heroes, Edward Snowden:
“An honor to meet with @SalilShetty, the head of @Amnesty, on the future of tech and human rights. A bright light for a dark time,” by Edward Snowden.
I am proud to say mine is among the 6,000 delivered to Mr. Snowden by Amnesty International’s Shetty.

“George Orwell’s 1984 described a surveillance state that monitors its citizens so constantly, so completely, that people assume they are always being watched. As online and physical surveillance increase in modern times, whether it’s the NSA, email providers scanning our messages to serve up ads, or being caught on a security camera as we walk down the street, surveillance is no longer relegated to the pages of 1984. It’s a part of our everyday lives,” from NBC News.

– Editor’s Note:
I love this Snowden quote:
“All over the world we see ruling parties aligning to protect the powerful. Principle is the only public defender; applaud it on any side.”
