Mikko Hypponen: How the NSA betrayed the world's trust

(19:19) George Orwell was optimistic. Computer security expert Mikko Hypponen summarises Edward Snowden's NSA revelations. The US is performing blanket surveillance on any foreigner whose data passes through an American entity, for example Facebook, or Google, or Twitter, or Amazon Web Services, or... basically everyone in the world who uses the internet. Important talk with a plea to finding alternatives to using American companies for the world's information needs.
