We Now Know A Lot More About Edward Snowden's Epic Heist — And It's Troubling

Source: Business Insider

Edward Snowden's in-depth interview with James Bamford of Wired offers details about his last job as a contractor for the NSA in Honolulu, which raise disconcerting questions about the motives of the former systems administrator. While working at two consecutive jobs in Hawaii from March 2012 to May 2013, the 31-year-old allegedly stole about 200,000 "tier 1 and 2" documents, which m ...

Columnist Glenn Greenwald Somehow Blames Israel for Ferguson Riots

Source: Big Government

Glenn Greenwald, the columnist famed for coming to the support of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, has chimed in on the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, by hinting that Israel is to blame for influencing the police there. Greenwald cited an Iranian activist named Trita Parsi who claimed that "excessive police violence" in Ferguson can be blamed on the fact that the county police chief took a fact-finding trip to Israel in 2011.

This week in stupid: Edward Snowden

Source: Big Government

Props to WIRED magazine for getting the interview everyone wanted: a full-length on the record with Edward Snowden from his Russian hideout. But that cover! Oh, that cover. The full image has to be seen to be believed. It would have been a provocative sight were Snowden not so comically dorky-looking. And, you know, a traitor.  With the possible exception of Snowden's media accomplice, Glenn Greenwald, I'm not sure any public figure is so ostentatiously fond of th ...

Challenging Edward Snowden and the information vigilantes

Edward Snowden: Surveillance, Spying Practices Have Brought U.S. to ‘Brink of the Abyss’

Source: Truth Dig

Wired/Platon Edward Snowden has just been granted three more years of asylum in Russia, and the former NSA contractor-turned-whistleblower is understandably choosy about whom he meets with in person. He granted James Bamford a good deal of time for an in-depth Wired story, and Bamford didn’t waste it. In the profile, set off memorably by photographer Platon Antoniou’s images, including the particularly striking portrait shown above, Snowden says he built clues into classified ...

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.
