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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
