Wozniak said Snowden’s relative youth when he informed the Guardian and The New York Times of the data leak – thus effectively ending the possibility of a normal life in the US – made him even more remarkable.
“Total hero to me; total hero,” Wozniak told ITP.net. “Not necessarily [for] what he exposed, but the fact that he internally came from his own heart, his own belief in the United States Constitution, what democracy and freedom was about.”
“So he’s a hero to me, because he gave up his own life to do it,” Wozniak told the technology paper.
“And he was a young person, to give up his life. But he did it for reasons of trying to help the rest of us and not just mess up a company he didn’t like,” he added.
Almost two years on from Snowden’s leak, opinion still rages over the acceptable limits of government supervision and access to private individuals’ lives – a topic touched on by Wozniak.
He told the newspaper he was concerned that his technological creations may have allowed authorities’ far greater access than any could have anticipated.
The US Senate convenes May 31 in a rare Sunday afternoon session called by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to forestall the expiration of Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act.
