Snowden remains holed up in Moscow under the asylum protection granted by the Kremlin, but he was still able to jump to the top of the speaker marquee at SXSW with the help of Internet communications and audio-visual capabilities. The live video feed will feature a discussion on Internet security between Snowden and his legal advisor from the American Civil Liberties Union.

Attendance is limited to holders of upper-tier Gold or Platinum name badges. Snowden is not the only controversial figure who is on the lam over spilling secrets to appear at SXSW.

Wow, the more I write that word the more meaningless it looks. So here you go: The vandwelling community is just that: I found a hilarious blog recently — HoboStripper. Now she does what she calls eco-porn. Most other blogs of van- and rv-dwellers are less startling, but many are clearly written by distinctive characters.
