Snowden Wrote Hundreds of Comments Online


Someone appearing to be NSA leaker Edward Snowden wrote hundreds of comments to ArsTechnica, a tech culture site. It was believed Snowden didn't have much of an online presence, but BuzzFeed has compiled his most interesting posts from the past ten years, including a question posted on May 21, 2012, asking how to create a program that would automatically wipe a computer if its owner didn't log back in. Previously, as an 18-year-old, Snowden was a web editor at a friend's anime company website, where he wrote of his video game prowess and popularity with the opposite sex.
