Watch LIVE: Edward Snowden at HOPE-X Today at 2:00pm EDT (18:00 UTC)

Whether you view Edward Snowden as a criminal or a hero, or somewhere in between, you cannot dispute that his revelations about pervasive surveillance have changed the discussions about the Internet on both technology and policy levels. If you are interested in hearing what Edward Snowden has to say himself, he is scheduled to speak today, Saturday, July 19, 2014, at 2:00pm US EDT at the HOPE-X conference in New York City. A live video stream will be available at:

Snowden is of course still in Russia and so he will be appearing via video. The HOPE-X schedule calls this “A Conversation with Edward Snowden” but provides no further details about what Snowden will say. Still, if you are curious to hear Snowden himself speaking this may be an interesting opportunity to do so.

The HOPE-X conference has a full agenda of security-related talks today and tomorrow (July 20). The entire event is being live streamed if you want to watch any of the sessions.
