Very interesting NYT article about Snowden, Laura Poitras, & Glenn Greenwald

Longer, more in depth article http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/18/magazine/laura-poitras-snowden.html?pagewanted=all and a shorter one that is also used in longer article http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/18/magazine/snowden-maass-transcript.html

Lot of people know who Snowden and Greenwald are now, I think fewer know who Laura Poitras is, sad to say I didn't before seeing this article.

For quick reference about these people see their Wikipedia links:
Lot of things of interest in above links.

Close reading of the NYT's article can provide some useful insights and tidbits to serious security.

I also want to note one comment by Snowden
"I was surprised to realize that there were people in news organizations who didn’t recognize any unencrypted message sent over the Internet is being delivered to every intelligence service in the world. In the wake of this year’s disclosures, it should be clear that unencrypted journalist-source communication is unforgivably reckless. "
