Forget about your privacy! The government always wants to know what your doing and where your at… Welcome to the big brother society! We all know being anonymous on the internet is becoming almost impossible..Now every time you sign up for something they want your cell phone number! Not to mention your address, name, email and everything else about you. This is for the purpose of identifying people for government databases and law enforcement.. If you post almost anything that could be taken as a ‘threat’ it will be given to authorities and you will most likely be arrested under ‘terrorism’.. Much like the members of the group ‘Anonymous’ They aren’t really hacking the websites, they are just sending a lot of packets to the website and it crashed because of too much traffic. The good part is that they are going after corrupt organizations. I think the government using this excuse to ‘control the internet’. Below Ill include some information that shows that the government is trying to make everyone get a ‘internet license’ so you can be held accountable for copyright items and your ‘words’ online… I encourage everyone to never use their real name online unless you are ordering products. Read information below about Google and the government involvement of creating an ID for everyone everywhere, including public places! Big Brother is here and it’s way worse that you thought!
DARPA’s Automated Video Surveillance Will End Public Anonymity
To be in public is to be on camera, but most video footage is discarded, as only so much can be sorted and analyzed — until now. DARPA has created a technology that can index and analyze video in real-time, marking the end of anonymity in public places.
In 2008, DARPA, the US military’s elite group of pocket protector warriors, began soliciting the tech industry to develop technologies that would allow computers to sort through and index surveillance footage from the military’s fleet of drones, satellites, and miscellaneous other super secret spy cameras. This was all part of the Agency’s proposed Video Image Retrieval and Analysis Tool (VIRAT) that would be able to describe specific human activities in real-time. This automated index would allow for searchable queries (i.e. “how often did an adult male taller than six-foot get in a car in the early morning between November 1st and December 22nd in this compound in Abbottabad?”) or flag behavior such as when someone carries a large package towards a car on the side of a road in Basra, but walked away empty handed.
And it appears that DARPA has had some success to this end. Earlier this week, the military released a mandated contract announcement describing how the VIRAT system will be deployed into various military-intelligence video archives and systems. The contract will be fulfilled by Lockheed Martin for an unspecified amount. We haven’t been given any detailed information on how this new technology works or how accurate it is, only that a belt-tightening defense industry is willing to invest in it.
The military has an inherent interest in transferring surveillance duties from human eyeballs to an algorithm that can’t be swayed by political pressure. In the run-up to the Iraq invasion, human analysts famously misread surveillance footage as proof of Iraqi WMDs.
Another interesting article about Google.. I wonder how much information they disclose to the NSA? But I thought this quote was interesting…
NSA’s eavesdropping mission includes radio broadcasting, both from various organizations and individuals, the Internet, telephone calls, and other intercepted forms of communication. Its secure communications mission includes military, diplomatic, and all other sensitive, confidential or secret government communications. It has been described as the world’s largest single employer of mathematicians, and the owner of the single largest group of supercomputers, but it has tried to keep a low profile. For many years, its existence was not acknowledged by the U.S. government, earning it the nickname, “No Such Agency” (NSA). Because the agency rarely makes any public remarks, it has been quipped that their motto is “Never Say Anything”.
Watchdog Group questions Google’s relationship with NSA
Google is in hot water again — or it will be if Consumer Watchdog can persuade the public to ask Congress to take action over the Google “Wi-Spy scandal.” Additionally, Consumer Watchdog published a report, Lost in the Cloud: Google and the US Government [PDF], that highlights Google’s relationship with NSA and claims the search giant has also “inappropriately benefited” from close and secretive relationships with other government agencies.
Google Street View cars spent three years collecting wireless data from millions of private users in 30 countries, information such as passwords, web browsing history and emails. Consumer Watchdog calls it the “largest wire-tapping scandal” the world has ever seen, yet Congress has not held any hearings. John Simpson, director of Consumer Watchdog’s Inside Google Project, said, “The details of the biggest privacy breach in history shouldn’t be settled in secret. This makes it clear why Google CEO Eric Schmidt needs to testify under oath before Congress about Wi-Spy.”
Google just keeps getting these government agencies partnering with this ‘Search Engine’.. I mean think about it; the search engine knows everything about you; what your looking for.. They know when certain things are trending.. I wouldn’t search, talk or post certain things on the web. Here is another reason why:
Google, CIA Invest in ‘Future’ of Web Monitoring
The investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future.
The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company says its temporal analytics engine “goes beyond search” by “looking at the ‘invisible links’ between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events.”
The idea is to figure out for each incident who was involved, where it happened and when it might go down. Recorded Future then plots that chatter, showing online “momentum” for any given event.
“The cool thing is, you can actually predict the curve, in many cases,” says company CEO Christopher Ahlberg, a former Swedish Army Ranger with a PhD in computer science.
Government can eavesdrop on your life by secretly listening through your cell phone
FBI has developed a technique that can remotely activate a nearby cell phone’s microphone, thereby turning it into a listening device.
The “roving bug” technique was approved by U.S. Department of Justice officials for use on members of an organized crime family in New York that was getting increasingly suspicious of tails, wiretaps or other traditional surveillance techniques.
The cell phones of alleged mobster John Ardiot — considered by the FBI to be one of the most powerful men in the national Mafia’s Genovese family — and his attorney Peter Peluso, also an alleged mobster, were activated by this technique in order for authorities to monitor nearby conversations. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that the technique was legal in an opinion this week, stating that federal wiretapping law was broad enough to cover the monitoring of conversations occurring near a suspect’s cell phone. Nextel spokesperson Travis Sowders said the company was not aware of the investigation and was not asked to participate.
The new method works whether the phone is on or off, because many phone models cannot be truly powered down without removing the battery. Some models, for example, will turn on from a powered-down state when an alarm is set.
