Edward Snowden, John Perry Barlow

In this June 5, 2014 file photo, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden participates in a conversation via video with John Perry Barlow, co-founder & vice chairman of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, at the 2014 Personal Democracy Forum, at New York University in New York. The boundary between the online and physical worlds got blurry last week when Sony’s PlayStation Network was disabled by an online attack, while an American Airlines passenger jet carrying a Sony executive was diverted due to a bomb threat on Twitter. Snowden told Wired magazine early August that the NSA had secretly planned a cyberwarfare program, codenamed MonsterMind, that could automatically fire back at cyberattacks from foreign countries without any human involvement.
