Libertarian Drone Project

Spying on americans is now inevitable. There is no possible response except a restructuring of government. There is only one answer: spy on the people doing the spying. This would be executives of marketing companies, generals, and politicians. Libertarians should consider all these people to be highly dangerous and we must keep constant surveillance on them. We cannot trust the police to spy equally. We should organize it. I am a scientist and I have friends in the industry. If there is interest, I will do the research and update with a new post sometime in March.

1 million tera bytes a day...

Seriously, where the hell are they storing all this crap.

Drones make me feel safe...(sigh)...

The answer to that question is easy.

The Utah Data Center. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utah_Data_Center.
Its a yottabyte storage facility. Million million terabytes per yottabyte. This one isnt secret. If my math is right, a yottabyte is sufficient for a fleet of UAVs to continuously surveil every square inch of america for a year.

Nice

Obviously, this is what being God must be like.

It's like none of these scientists and engineers have ever seen a Terminator movie or read any history of government tyranny or read any speculative fiction on dystopic futures.

It's worse than that.

It's worse than that. They/we do watch those. Problem is: either the pay is too good or they really don't question much, if at all, their employer's morality...

But, also, sometimes yes, I suppose, some may be politically idiot/ignorant.
