Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government's system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down.In 2013, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance with the ability to pry into the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the very first time how he helped to build this system and why he was moved to expose it.Spanning the bucolic Beltway suburbs of his childhood and the clandestine CIA and NSA postings of his adulthood, Permanent Record is the extraordinary account of a bright young man who grew up online - a man who became a spy, a whistleblower, and, in exile, the Internet's conscience. Written with wit, grace, passion, and an unflinching candor, Permanent Record is a crucial memoir of our digital age and destined to be a classic.… (mais)

Quite good, I had wanted to learn more about Snowden and the circumstances surrounding his reveal of the NSA's tactics and his subsequent exile and this book provides both. I enjoyed learning about his family and history, I think it gave good context to his decision to reveal the secrets he did. I'm very impressed by him, I understand why many would consider him a threat and a traitor, but the core explanation and motivations make total sense to me. Nobody has a right to look at my information without a warrant/just cause, yet we seem to willingly allow it, even after his bombshell revelations to the press.

As usual, it seems a small group of dedicated and fearless journalists, lawyers and whistleblowers are trying to do what is right and just and I have to admire that. ( )

Un bon llibre per conèixer les motivacions que van portar l'Edward Snowden a ser el personatge públic que revelaria tot el sistema d'espionatge que el govern dels EUA estava aplicant a la seva ciutadania a través dels sistemes de la NSA. ( )

Having worked for the government and having seen firsthand how whistleblowers are treated myself, I believe Snowden deserves everyone's thanks for coming forward and exposing the egregious actions of the Intelligence Community. He is one of my heroes right up there with Daniel Ellsberg. He is also a good writer. He even manages to incorporate some "laugh out loud" humor. A remarkable person. ( )

Writes well. Very brave man for coming forward and exposing all this stuff the govenment was doing. Love how he explains what he did, vs how he was presented in the press as this rogue, dumb nerd. Glad he got married and is with someone he loves. At some point he may be looked at as a real hero. And also like his thought about = how can he be a whistleblower? Blowing the whistle; how about exposing serious illegal activity. ( )

I don't agree with everything Snowden did, and I don't know how complete this book is about his motivations and actions, but even with those caveats, it's an excellent book.

The most interesting aspect for me was not the factual description of what he did (although there are some never-before-read details), but his mindset and motivation to choose to betray the NDAs and chain of command while (possibly) honoring the oath of service. The technical details about his archiving system (it basically crawled a bunch of the published-within-IC sources and then indexed them, republishing for internal use, which allowed him perfect cover for exfiltration...) were still interesting, of course. That NSA had incredibly lax internal security and compartmentalization in the 1993-2013 period (due to losing all the cold war people and replacing them with...a specific demographic profile), CIA and State's technical incompetence, etc. are all pretty well supported by evidence. (Incidentally, the technical jack of all trades at CIA job sounds pretty amazing.)

Least expected angle was just how impressive his wife is. NSA's initial angle was "stripper", which brings a whole set of assumptions. However, this was pretty clearly inaccurate -- she's an intelligent and thoughtful person (although not involved in Snowden's exfiltration of data or escape), and based on actions since the incident (moving to Russia, marrying Snowden a year later, ...), seems

His descriptions of contracting culture and the gov/contractor split, hypertrophy and metastasis of the IC and contractors, etc all are strongly supported by evidence (and my personal experience as a contractor with the government for several years).

What is missing, and calls into question the veracity of the whole account, is the exact process of deciding to do all of this. In the book, it was that he accidentally saw a STLW (Stellar Wind) document, related to one of the most morally and legally questionable programs post-Church conducted by the USG (and for which individuals should be prosecuted and likely hanged), then just started searching for and consuming information for his own education (to see if these programs really existed), and only then decided to leak. That's possible, but it's not strongly supported. The mysterious occurrence of epilepsy around this time which motivated him to spend time on self-reflection and switching to a role with less of everything except access to this data, etc. seems a bit too convenient. This is the one area where I'm still a bit suspicious of the whole affair (either that an external power was involved, or that other NSA insiders supported him), but the story as told could also be the truth -- it's just difficult or impossible to validate.

Overall, one of the best books about the complex and evolving interplay between young, relatively powerless individuals who have technical competence and thus effective technical control over large institutions like government vs. the official power structures, the failures of USG/IC, and one of the biggest news stories in civil liberties since the 1970s.

Snowden liefert einzigartige Einsichten in das Innenleben amerikanischer Geheimdienste: ein Psychogramm der Mitarbeiter/innen und eine Analyse der Strukturen. Beides verbindet der 36-Jährige mit seiner eigenen ungewöhnlichen Geschichte. […] Edward Snowden ist ein Vorbild dafür, was es heißt, sich für Rechtsstaatlichkeit und die eigenen Werte zu engagieren.
 
In the aftermath of 9/11, he joined the US army because he "wanted to show I wasn't just a brain in a jar", and had he not suffered stress fractures during training, he would have become a special forces soldier. Snowden says his greatest regret was his own "reflexive, unquestioning support" for the decision to wage war after the attacks, and how it led to "the promulgation of secret policies, secret laws, secret courts and secret wars". He found out about this parallel world working for different intelligence agencies as a contractor tasked with upgrading their antediluvian IT systems. As the spies pivoted towards cyber espionage, the top brass missed something quite important: "The CIA didn't quite understand. The computer guy knows everything, or rather can know everything." Snowden, it seems, was in a position to access their crown jewels.

[...] He eventually decided his loyalties lay not with the agencies he was working for, but the public they were set up to protect. He felt ordinary citizens were being betrayed, and he had a duty to explain how.

I still struggle to accept the sheer magnitude and speed of the change, from an America that sought to define itself by a calculated and performative respect for dissent to a security state whose militarized police demand obedience, drawing their guns and issuing the order for total submission now heard in every city: “Stop resisting.”
The 2008 crisis, which laid so much of the foundation for the crises of populism that a decade later would sweep across Europe and America, helped me realize that something that is devastating for the public can be, and often is, beneficial to the elites. This was a lesson that the US government would confirm for me in other contexts, time and again, in the years ahead.
...the companies themselves are American and are subject to American law. The problem is, they’re also subject to classified American policies that pervert law and permit US government to surveil virtually every man, woman, and child who has ever touched a computer or picked up a phone.
I worked, I was sure of it, for the good guys, and that made me a good guy, too.
...Hiroshima...Nagasaki...Those places are holy places, whose memorials honor the two hundred thousand incinerated and the countless poisoned by fallout while reminding us of technology’s amorality.
