Disturbing "Deviant Philosopher" calls himself a libertarianSubmitted by slamhead on Tue, 08/20/2013 - 03:50
I read this a week ago and I am surprised it did not hit DP. When we are done with reigning in government we need to go after those who aid and abet.
This is basically bayesian technology on steroids. LE has been using this technology for years to look at patterns. Who is talking to who, who is participating, who is the boss, who is calling the shots. Think about trying to analyze the structure of a drug cartel.
Read between the lines and this technology and data is being shared or even being passed to this company to come up with graphical maps of all communications. All an NSA analyst has to do is browse this map that looks like a spider web of all communications, they find a node interesting they just have to click on the node or anyone in the node and with the recently revealed NSA data collection they will have instant access to phone, text, email, chat, and web traffic detail for that individual. It is like browsing the web. Everything is a click away and there are no constraints on how far you can dig.
I found this article so disturbing mostly because this guy calls himself a libertarian.
