(The title borrows a phrase I believe was coined by RaW, an author of some very entertaining, thought provoking
books of which my favorite was the original version of “Cosmic Trigger”.)
You would have to have been living under a rock to not understand that “Big Brother” is watching you, and everyone you know these days. From security cameras, red light cameras to those cameras in your own office complex, you are more than likely vid-streamed or imaged several times during the course of your normal day. Big deal right? “Who cares?!? I have nothing to hide.” is a tired refrain I hear/read most often. I suppose this may well be true, unless you didn’t realize that what you thought was protected freedom of speach/expression, is considered an
indicator that you might be a dangerous threat. Fire sale on Ron Paul bumper stickers.
So yeah, most people just don’t care (as ToyMaker makes a case for in a recent post) anyway. However, let us forge ahead and serve up some information about newer, rather far reaching technology – in the hands of well, anyone.
Bob does a nice job of laying out how this great data aggregation software can be used by anyone, pretty much any where, and take advantage of people blindly using this or that technology must have. If you must have this yourself, grab it here.
Still with me? So what might the government be doing with all this overload of technology? The Onion hit it on the head.
This next bit in a nice cheeky, and dare I say a little snark thrown in, actually puts forth some facts.
More on just some of the facts, nothing to see here though.
All of this continually sets off my “Suspicion Theory Meter”, but hey! I’m probably just paranoid…
