Standing Ovation For Robot Man Edward Snowden at TED Conference, Vancouver

It's all about Edward Snowden these days. Over the last week, this hero, whistleblower, spy (name him what you will) managed to bring to light earth-shattering NSA secrets that threaten the privacy and security of Internet users all over the world.

 

After appearing last Wednesday at the SXSW festival through live-stream voice call, he made a follow-up surprise public appearance at this year's TED Conference, held in Vancouver, in the most ingenious manner possible--a Beam Bot Robot.

 

Conference host Chris Anderson interviewed his guest Snowden, who was streaming live from an “undisclosed location," on issues involving Internet security and what the future holds concerning NSA's surveillance and activities of breach of privacy.

 

Snowden has disclosed thousands of NSA reports, and promises "some of the most important reporting is yet to come." Notwithstanding, this makes him a wanted man in the USA. Yet, he boldly continues to stand his ground, saying, "I did this not to be safe. I did this to do what was right."

He does not stand alone in the fight for government transparency and freedom of the Internet.

 

Facebook's front man, Mark Zuckerberg, in the wake of Snowden's recent revelations involving Facebook's users, confronted President Obama in a phone call. The inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, who was amongst the crowd and called onstage, also pledged his allegiance to the cause after confirming that he had used his celebration of the web's 25th birthday to urge the construction of an “Internet Bill of Rights."

 

According to Snowden, "A Magna Carta for the Internet is exactly what we need to encode values not just in writing but in the structure of the Internet."

 

The half-hour-long conference ended with a standing ovation honouring the hero of the day--Edward Snowden.
