Facebook For Spies?
Tonight I saw this little piece on CNN about how the CIA had developed "Facebook for spies." They had some spook on talking about how they had streaming video "like YouTube" and file sharing "like Google Docs." Apparently they’ve spent $5MM building this.
You’re kidding, right? Tell me we’ve got holographic, 3-D visualizations, neural nets, artificial intelligence and crazy data manipulation tools. Tell me there’s some prototype pre-crime unit, but don’t tell me in 2008 that the CIA is experimenting with Facebook and YouTube. I really hope this is some sort of disinformation program…
