SXSW 2014: Edward Snowden to Speak at SXSW Interactive Via Videoconference

A conversation between Edward Snowden and Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist of the American Civil Liberties Union. The conversation will be focused on the impact of the NSA’s spying efforts on the technology community, and the ways in which technology can help to protect us from mass surveillance. Hear directly from Snowden about his beliefs on what the tech community can and must do to secure the private data of the billions of people who rely on the tools and services that we build. This session will be moderated by Ben Wizner, who is director of the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy & Technology Project and Edward Snowden’s legal advisor. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions.

IMDB’S Bottom 100: #13 … Is it the subtle Beach Boys references or the coffee drinking horse that make this a classic, maybe it’s characters such as Shoeboogey, the atrocious acting, the hilarious dialogue, the voice dubbing, baffling long character shots, the blade runner rip-off opening credits, the cliché comic robot, the fact that the movie is so confused as to what it is while taking itself seriously, or possibly it’s just that it’s so God-Awfully Brilliant !!!! Decide for yourself, Pure Genius!

I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!
