It's time to have some fun

Snowden (2016)

Last night I watched another of @John-Connor recommendations, Snowden directed by Oliver Stone. I went into this not knowing much about Edward Snowden only that he had worked for the NSA and blew the whistle on illegal surveillance activities being done on telecommunications & the internet. But Snowden's name has come up on many online privacy articles I've read. Just a few days ago I bought my wife a smartphone, something I loath to have as it's a literal leakmachine for privacy, so I decided to root the phone and replace the stock android operating system with GrapheneOS which is the most private and secure custom OS you can put onto an Android phone...while I was doing research I found a quote attributed to Ed Snowden where he said if he had a phone it would run GrapheneOS, so yeah, I know I made a good choice! And that wasn't the first time his name came up, I also seen him referenced when I was looking for encrypted email, even here on MoFo we had a convo about Snowden and his choice of Linux Cubes as his computer OS.

To cut to the chance, I was pre-primed to like this movie and I did enjoy watching it. So much so that I'm going to watch the documentary about Snowden Citizenfour. I think my very positive reaction to the movie is hearing a message that I already believed in as I've spent a lot of time researching online privacy and I'm deeply concerned by the erosion of our online rights by the three-letter agencies and the big telecommunications companies.

Good choice for me!
