At the 30th year of TED, the big scoop was Edward Snowden’s interview with Chris Anderson, which has already been transcribed and dissected. Snowden made an appearance via a telepresence robot, and declared that “some of the most important reporting is yet to come.”
It’s comforting to see a good majority of the TED audience supports Snowden’s whistleblowing, even Tim Berners Lee considers him a hero. What are your views on Snowden? Is he a traitor or a hero?
