NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden: Had no time to register the .com

The whistle blower behind PRISM, the secret NSA operative, came forth today; the announcement of his name and function within the NSA is definitely shaking the waters of the Obama administration.

Edward Snowden, a systems analyst with an above top secret clearance, essentially pulled the rug from under the NSA, by revealing that the organization is processing mass amounts of personal data without discrimination, including domestic phone communications.

It appears that despite his background in information technology, Edward Snowden – who is currently in Hong Kong – did not register his full name as a .com

That, however, was done earlier today: EdwardSnowden.com was just registered by Mark Collier, who appears to be an Austin, Texas entrepreneur. Collier’s company, the OpenStack Foundation, provides some interesting presentation slides.

At this point, it is not clear if Mark Collier registered the domain name, EdwardSnowden.com, in order to preserve it on behalf of Edward Snowden, whether he approves of Snowden’s intervention or whether he opposes it.

It’s definitely going to be a rather hot summer for US politics – and for domaining! 😀

    Evidently, this spying business has been going on since 2006, beginning during the Bush administration, so both parties share equal blame in this sad and tawdry scandal. Having been an Obama supporter, I am disappointed that he and his administration are proving to be no better than his predecessor.

    Lord Acton was correct when he said, “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

    I’m not sure what kind of info the government was seeking, but if the average spied-upon phone calls are as boring as mine, then the NSA listeners must have certainly felt like snoozing.
