He chose the city because "they have a spirited commitment to free speech and the right of political dissent", and because he believed that it was one of the few places in the world that both could and would resist the dictates of the US government (sic!)

He puts a large red hood over his head and laptop when entering his passwords to prevent any hidden cameras from detecting them.
