Found it interesting...
This is old news, someone else already posted several links to Google-NSA partnership a year ago. It's kind of obvious, indeed, Google is partnering with NSA. It's politics man, what can you expect...
Quite worrying in a way, did the USA drop the total information awareness initiative?
Google is a data collecting powerhouse, but noone matches the computing power at the NSA's disposal!
How powerful is there computing power?
Here is a story about a storage facility they built in Utah: http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2009/07/03/new_nsa_data_center/
I'd never even heard of a Yottabite before
Baring in mind that most of my knowledge concerning them is out of date, mid 90's the underground Maryland facility was the stuff of legends!
Check it out on Google Maps (and that's just the surface ):
So its about 750teraflops-1.2 petaflops of power?
If you have lived in America and not know this then you have not been paying attention.
it has always been said that when Google gets its own AI, its SkyNet waiting to happen.
They are now teaming up with the NSA .... one step closer to a military funded AI SkyNet ..
Scarey shit !
No that's just ONE of their storage facilities! One of the few organisatiosn that never stopped making super computers, they're currently building one with an EXAFLOP of power!
(Once again, that is just 1 computer, they have tons!)
I wonder what its like playing SC2 with one of those...
It would be SWEET
Tell you whats scary though. US law which forbids the NSA being mentioned or legislated against in any future laws.
Gmail has a nice bit of small print which says anything in your 10GB of storage after 6 months becomes part of their database. Add all of that to the NSA's computing power and you have some hardcore analytics with no outside interferance!
The scariest thing is that the NSA's idea of computing security is not having their computers connected to outside networks, really not sure how Google thinks that will help them lol.
Why does NSA need to collect so much data on people?
The NSA unlike every other tool of the state doesn't actually have a remit.
It's sole aim is 'National Security', and they can interpret it anyway they like
Tell you what is strange/terrifying though, Echelon: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/503224.stm that system is 10 years old, and it was intercepting FAR more than you'd ever imagine possible. However in that pre patriot act world the US couldn't spy on it's own citizens, so all the English speaking nations of the world got together and agreed to spy on each others citizens. The UK did the US, US did Canada and the UK, New Zealand did Australia and Oz did New Zealand.
Nowadays though.... they don't need to get someone else to do it
Take a wild guess. Come on... no, go wilder than that... wilder
But I don't have to worry about the NSA,since im not breaking the law?
Breaking laws isn't what the NSA is there for.
If you endanger national security (and that includes activism in any form, reading the wrong books or looking at the wrong sites), then they're you might fall under their ever watchful eye...
(And as you've seen, they have SO MUCH STORAGE that they can keep tabs on everyone and store it forever)
lol, noobs work together
NSA is actually the only effective arm of the US government in my opinion.
Look at all the public failures of the CIA and FBI over the years, now try and find one for the NSA (of course it could be argued that the fact that they aren't required to actually do anything and can prevent you publishing anything about them might have something to do with it lol)
WTF are you talking about noob?
i think he meant the NSA and Google
Separate names with a comma.
