Meglio i servizi sociali, in effetti
Meglio Twitter o Friendstalker?

Monetizzare la base dati (versione AT&T e CIA)

La AT&T vende - per un forfait  di circa 10 milioni di euro all'anno -  alla CIA i dati delle telefonate che passano per i suoi cavi. Tutto più semplice di una lunga richiesta di esibizione di atti attraverso un tribunale segreto. Questo l'attacco del pezzo del NYT di oggi

The C.I.A. is paying AT&T more than $10 million a year to assist with overseas counterterrorism investigations by exploiting the company’s vast database of phone records, which includes Americans’ international calls, according to government officials. The cooperation is conducted under a voluntary contract, not under subpoenas or court orders compelling the company to participate, according to the officials. The C.I.A. supplies phone numbers of overseas terrorism suspects, and AT&T searches its database and provides records of calls that may help identify foreign associates, the officials said. The company has a huge archive of data on phone calls, both foreign and domestic, that were handled by its network equipment, not just those of its own customers.

 

Comunque è un passo in avanti: negli anni '70 la ITT con la CIA organizzava colpi di stato in Cile.
