Meh, this guy's no David Miranda or even Kim Dotcom. Looks like some nobody that got flagged for random search and is now trying to get his 15 minutes by claiming a tenuous link to Snowden.

I'm a distrustful of big brother as the next green voter, but do we really think they went after him because he went to one presentation?

I don't get it, what is the end game. What are they trying to achieve? This would be severely disruptive to a lot of people's lives, they might as well ask him to hand in his wallet and freeze all his bank accounts

It's more than a random search - taking a bunch of his electronic equipment is hardly something that is done lightly.
