Gellman and Snowden

Barton Gellman's new book about Snowden is finally coming out. The Atlantic has an excerpt. The excerpt is about Gellman's own history of being surveilled, and is scary as shit.

Wired has another excerpt, with Gellman talking about what questions talking to Snowden led him to next. The idea of contact chaining, even if not abused to the degree the NSA could have abused it, is insidious indeed.

Given that Snowden's own book raised more questions than it answered, per my review, I'm interested.
