Holy Peephole Batman...They're Spying On Us
This is interesting stuff. Not particularly surprising, but interesting.
Although one has to wonder, given The New York Times long history as a mouthpiece for US propaganda, what their motives are for putting this guy on the web.
In some ways I think the US government loves to float bullshit stories about its omnipotent powers for no other reason than to appear more omnipotent than it really is.
Not that I doubt the theory behind the guys story, just pointing out that so many elements of its presentation are, to put it mildly, suspect.
It does make me infinitely happy that I'm cell phone free, Facebook free, Twitter free, etc.
Even this blog & its attendant e-mail address is under a completely fictitious name.
I am, as far as I've been able to ascertain, a complete Internet non-entity.
