AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is speaking at this year's South By Southwest Interactive Festival.

But the former NSA contractor isn't appearing in person at the conference. He's speaking remotely via video as he remains in Moscow where he's living in temporary asylum.

Snowden faces felony charges in the U.S. after revealing the agency's mass surveillance program by leaking thousands of classified documents to media outlets.

Christopher Soghoian, principal technologist at the American Civil Liberties Union, is speaking to Snowden along with Snowden's legal adviser, the ACLU's Ben Wizner.

Fugitive WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange spoke at the conference in a similar manner on Saturday. Assange is living in asylum at the Ecuadorean embassy in London.
