One of the last works — the Internet platform for communication with the Washington Post. Against the background of the revelations of Edward Snowden this project — under special attention. The main issue: the social network — a means of communication or a tool of total surveillance?

"To us periodically contacts the police and the FBI to find out where he had written a comment, or what kind of information we have about a particular user. We watch what is documented reason for such a request, and if the base is, law, we are required to disclose such information, what we do, "- says the founder and Technical Director of Echo Leo Valkin.
