Edward Snowden appeared on the TED stage earlier today via a telepresence robot, which he was able to control remotely. So after giving the talk, “Here’s how we take back the internet” — which is now live on TED.com now (after our production team edited it in record time) — Snowden didn’t sign off. He decided to have a little fun and roam the halls of TED2014. First, he had a conversation with Sergey Brin, a moment snapped by one of TED’s engineers. From there, he kept on going, interacting with any attendees who wanted to talk to him or pose for what’s become known around the Vancouver Convention Centre as a “Snowden selfie.” Here, some images.
Meanwhile, on social media, people are posting similar pics with the hashtag #selfiewithsnowden:
