Re: Wasting more $$$
said by mikedz4:up to there eyes in data and not enough people to sort it out
where was this "nsa" before 9-11? This is all post 9-11 stuff. It's all infringing on our freedoms and rights.
this whole thing is short that data so it takes less humans to sort though more data then ever be for
think of it like this your in a stadium trying to listen in on EVERY conversation at once but you only have 10 people thats what happened with 9-11
The NSA has been around since 1952. And tremendously computerized by the 1960s.
So no matter what people think, this has been going on for over 50 yrs. The US has been capturing worldwide communications since the 1960s.
not saying it hasnt again know people that worked at NSA HQ
its just they had always had and imo will always have far more data then they can sort out but with data centers like this doing more of the sorting they can sift though it MUCH faster then 10 years ago
btw ECHELON is VERY slow(relatively) and takes a wile to chew though data
very cool NOVA on the NSA
shame i didnt do better in school would of loved to work for the NSA
