Edward Snowden skyped into Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre for a talk entitled “Big Data, Security, and Human Rights” on April 5, and here it is!

We’re a little behind with our Snowden Events coverage, but I blame Simon Fraser University, which has yet to post the video. Instead, we borrowed our copy from Richard Maok, aka hackerFiscalia. The event, live at Queen Elizabeth Theatre, sold out quickly, so the university livestreamed it, although no archive of that seems to exist other than this one. Questions were opened up to the audience both in person and online, via Twitter. According to the SFU announcement the panel discussion after Snowden’s talk was “led by CBC’s Senior Correspondent and host Laura Lynch and featuring panelists Micheal Vonn (BC Civil Liberties Association), Peter Chow-White (SFU), and Fred Popowich (SFU).” The talk was a part of SFU’s community outreach and engagement program the SFU Public Square.

Cartooning phenomenon and Vancouver institution Rob Cottingham of the Noise-To-Signal cartoon live-cartooned the talk, and we’re very proud to present those sketches. Wayyy more fun than a transcript!
