How we take back the internet | Edward Snowden

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 say, “because you never know when you’re going to need them.” Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design — plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

  • Edward Joseph Snowden…..was not a hero, I believe in what he did, but unfortunatley the only outcome from all this has made him a fugative from his country. He is brilliant in the mind, but lonely, living in a country that is opposite to his own will be uncomfortable. He spoke for the American citizens and only a few watched his videos, his comments, his speeches. And in return he gets a few likes and comments. If the people in the world cared, then they would stand up……instead, the most asked the question "what can I do"? The events will continue, while they still make weapons, drugs and governments lie and cheat, there will never ever be unity. I wish I could live long enough to see that comet that will collide with Earth and create total extinction………Then all the monies that is hidden, will just fade.

  • Mr Snowden is impressive, intelligent, unselfish, a hero and a model of courage to not just talk BUT HE DOES THE WALK.
    He should be embraced as a hero working within his ‘own country’ as a civilian upholding precious rights.
    Note this is shameful. America’s supposed to be a leader in civil rights but it is following towards greedy leadership heading towards assimilating other very suppressed nations. We have to welcome him to return, support him in the endeavor to keep honest, relevant and freedoms to support journalism and ‘privacy’ in our personal communications. I support him, pray for his safety to return to his home and succeed to make a BIG difference in our civil rights.

  • The general medias are increasingly becoming a war field full of an obvious but undeclared threat. Like any battlefield the soldiers are reliant upon drugs for their tactical advantage and well-being. There are many battlefields in life and each constitutes it's victories and defeats but none is as refined or important than the opportunities of legal awareness. I give my support to those on the legal fronts to end this obscure threat upon information and it's outlets.

  • Snowden is a traitor. He transmitted the secret data of his country to the Russia- most aggressive and totalitarian country in the world, which for years has been killing other nations and occupies foreign territories, for example Chechnya, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine. Snowden, how much Putin paid you? Putin = Hitler of the 21th century and you help him to kill innocent people.

  • so an argument was made about how this would impact an innocent person. why would an innocent person worry about their data being collected? Well this is why…. If you are a woman or a child that is not protected then they would target you for sexual trafficking or your children and you know what they do to them.. that's why or any o f your friends or their children that you would not want them taken

  • You have to wonder who's in the audience. People who don't agree with what he did is sitting right there listening in. What's the criteria of being able to be a part of the audience to sit in this meeting and listen?? 🤔🤔

  • It's so dangerous to come out and speak against "these people"! I applaud people like Ed who come out anyway! May he be blessed!… These people are doing so many wrong things and anyone who sheds the light on them and what they're doing, they try to kill them or threaten them to shut them up so the world doesn't know what they're doing! This world has become such a bad place to be! Life wasn't supposed to be like this or maybe it was eventually so that nothing could be hardly enjoyable here anymore, hence the end is near!

  • Journalists are actually just people with a passion and they usually like truth and have an amazing way of relating the truth that some people do not like. That’s wrong and he has an excellent point and I don’t care what his hidden agenda could be he’s right.
