Appearing by telepresence robot, Edward Snowden speaks at TED2014 about surveillance and Internet freedom. The right to data privacy, he suggests, is not a partisan issue, but requires a fundamental rethink of the role of the internet in our lives — and the laws that protect it. “Your rights matter,” he says, “because you never know when you’re going to need them.” Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.
THE PRISM PROGRAM
A program about content. It could deputized corporate america to do the work of the NSA. Each company handles it in a different way, some are more responsible than others.
*Note: The secret FISA courts have reviewed over 33,000 warrant requests and only 11 have been rejected.
Boundless Informant is a program hidden from Congress
More communications are being collected on Americans than anywhere else.
The NSA has violated its own rules 1,000s of times a year.
