Interesting experience. What tied it together for me was the Snowden quote at the end. I personally haven’t been able to decide where I stand on the question of Snowden, but my thinking as you related the story touched on ‘should I care if I was in that position’… and my thinking DID include ‘I have nothing to hide — who cares…”. But the bigger picture is what counts here and what it means in that sense. And in this case, I think Snowden is right.
I hope you keep up the work and also maintain your personal rights and privacy.
