Google cofounder Sergey Brin said the company was shocked to learn that the National Security Agency was snooping backbone data. Speaking with Re/Code’s Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at the inaugural Code Conference, Brin explained that even though the company was surprised to learn of the NSA’s data-collection practices, Google had already started encrypting much of that backbone data anyway. He said the NSA revelations made the U.S. government look “hypocritical” and “raised a lot of policy questions.”
