Snowden Speaks at SXSW



By Bill O'Neil 

He's not backing down--months after blowing the whistle on the National Security Agency's surveillance program, Edward Snowden remains defiant. 

"They're setting fire to the future of the interent--and the people who are in this room now--you guys are all of the firefighters--and we need you to help us fix this" Snowden said during a videocnference appearance at Austin's South by Southwest. 

Snowden said it's up to the people--and technology innovators--to fight back.  

"There's a policy response that needs to occur--but there's also a technical response that needs to occur" Snowden said, calling the issue an international problem--which has created an "adversarial internet."
