Hello reddit!

Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald here together in Los Angeles, joined by Edward Snowden from Moscow.

A little bit of context: Laura is a filmmaker and journalist and the director of CITIZENFOUR, which last night won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

The film debuts on HBO tonight at 9PM ET| PT (http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/citizenfour).

Glenn is a journalist who co-founded The Intercept (https://firstlook.org/theintercept/) with Laura and fellow journalist Jeremy Scahill.

Laura, Glenn, and Ed are also all on the board of directors at Freedom of the Press Foundation. (https://freedom.press/)

We will do our best to answer as many of your questions as possible, but appreciate your understanding as we may not get to everyone.

UPDATE: I will be also answering from /u/SuddenlySnowden.


UPDATE: I'm out of time, everybody. Thank you so much for the interest, the support, and most of all, the great questions. I really enjoyed the opportunity to engage with reddit again -- it really has been too long.

Mr Snowden, do you feel that your worst fear is being realized, that most people don't care about their privacy?

Thank you, Mr Greenwald for the works you've written on this subject. No Place to Hide was fantastic. Mr Snowden, thank you for standing up for what you believe in, even in the face of extreme adversity. Ms. Poitras, thank you for the work you do and the things you create despite similar scrutiny. The world is better by having the three of you, and congratulations on the win.

Hey guys, sorry -- the reddit mods are being a little weird. My account is /u/SuddenlySnowden.

Mods: Can you pull back the ban? I can't post from the primary account. Thanks.

How did you guys feel about about Neil Patrick Harris' "for some treason" joke last night?

Wow the questions really blew up on this one. Let me start digging in...

To be honest, I laughed at NPH. I don't think it was meant as a political statement, but even if it was, that's not so bad. My perspective is if you're not willing to be called a few names to help out your country, you don't care enough.

"If this be treason, then let us make the most of it."

Note: reddit is rate-limiting my replies to one per ten minutes ("you are doing that too much! try again in 9 minutes..."), guys. Sorry for the slow responses.
