Edward Snowden – The Person of the year 2013

Internet is not just a basic utility, but it is rather considered as oxygen now-a-days as things tend to freeze without it – even for a single minute…With the ultra-fast and secure communications, internet became a ‘faithful messenger’, who can literally travel the whole world…

That’s the power of the ‘internet’.

And now if you suddenly reveal that all your messages weren’t that secure in the hands of that “undercover” faithful messenger – a revolution was about to happen – or in this case Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden, a former C.I.A and National Security Agency [ N.S.A ] employee, who unveiled the mass surveillance program of NSA – or we better call it PRISM was named as The Guardian “Person of the year” – 2013.He also received the famous “Sam Adams Award” this year…

Now what made Edward Snowden the person of the year ..?

He didn’t just reveal the secret of NSA, but he did it on knowing the consequences he had to face form the government… In one of the interviews he told, “I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions, and that the return of this information to the public marks my end.”

Thus the Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has described Edward Snowden as a “hero”, declaring that “history will judge him very favourably.”

So let’s hope that Jimmy Wales words come true…

Long live Snowden – The person of the year 2013…
