Snowden Finds Website Maintenance Job in Russia

Edward Snowden is not a jobless person now. He finds himself a computer job. One of the Russia's biggest websites hires NSA man as a website maintainer. Snowden lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, said that Edward Snowden will start his work on November 1. But due to some security reasons, he refused to tell the name of website for which Snowden is hired.

But a tech news website Digit.ru speculates that Snowden is going to work for the social networking site VKontakte.ru. This website is very popular in the country and it can be called as Russian Facebook. This speculation is based on VKontakte spokesman Georgy Lobushkin's statements. He previously said in August that "he could see Snowden assisting VKontakte in maintaining the security of its online chat program," according to RIA Novosti . And now he refused to comment on this hiring news. But he but would not rule out the possibility of hiring Snowden.

Other big Russian online firms, including Yandex and Mail.ru, denied that they had hired Snowden. Edward Snowden was granted a temporary asylum in Russia this August. Since then, he has been living at a hidden place in Russia.

On April 8, 2013, I received an envelope in the mail from a nonexistent return address in Toledo, Ohio. Inside was a blank thank-you note and an Ohio state driver’s license. The ID belonged to a 28-year-old man called Aaron Brown—6 feet tall and 160 pounds with a round face, scruffy brown hair, a thin beard, and green eyes. His most defining feature, however, was that he didn’t exist. I know that because I created him. As an artist, I’ve long been interested in identity and the ways it is repr ...
