From the moment I began researching Edward Snowden's biography, there were hints that the NSA leaker was kind of ... eccentric. Weird. Flaky.
A lot of computer geeks are kind of flaky, but Snowden's flakiness is exacerbated by the fact that he dropped out of school in 10th grade and much of his education since then has been autodidactic. And it is this self-taught 29-year-old nerd who decided to leak top-secret information about the National Security Agency's surveillance program because ... he's a kook.
