Last month, Barton Gellman and I opened for Edward Snowden’s first-ever public appearance, at the SXSW conference in Austin. The kind folks at SXSW have put the video online (the Snowden video itself was already up). I think we did a good job of framing the big questions raised by the Snowden leaks.

An amazing story out of Bucharest—a 13 year old girl has taken it upon herself to take in stray dogs off the streets, get them vetted, and use Facebook to adopt them out to families all over Europe. The money for the vaccinations, micro-chipping and international passports for the dogs is coming out of her own family’s money. She hopes one day to be a doctor, and until then she wants to save as many dogs as she can.

Watch this: Android design head Matias Duarte explains why mobile is dead
Matias Duarte helped design the T-Mobile Sidekick, the Helio Ocean, and Palm’s webOS. Now, he directs the look and feel of Google’s Android operating system. He’s probably not the guy you’d expect to say “mobile is dead.” Those were the words that left his mouth, though, at the 2014 Accel Design Conference in San Francisco. There, Verge editor-in-chief Joshua Topolsky interviewed him about his thoughts on design and where Android is headed.

Today’s top item in Book News: Ginny Weasley, the freckly, flame-haired girl who later marries Harry Potter, grows up to be a sports journalist, according to new writing from J.K. Rowling on the website Pottermore. (Login required.) The stories are Ginny’s dispatches from the 2014 Quidditch World Cup for the magical newspaper The Daily Prophet. “Not a single Quaffle thrown, not a single Snitch caught, but the 427th Quidditch World Cup is already mired in controversy,” she writes. “Magizoologists have congregated in the desert to contain the mayhem and Healers have attended more than 300 crowd members suffering from shock, broken bones and bites.”
Also today, Ian McEwan on having dinner with Salman Rushdie during the fatwa, and James Salter remembers Peter Matthiessen. Read more here.
