The Spy in the Machine
Google handed over more user data to the US government in the first six months of this year than to all other countries combined.
Well, my hard drive crashed this summer, when I asked whether the DOJ asserted executive privilege because Lanny Breuer was deep in the cheese. After several of those posts, when my hard drive should be at rest, it began to spin furiously. Now I am talking about the Google Purge. I might just have to accept it, if somebody told me I am now officially part of the tin foil hat brigades.
But now that we can see how The Elite that Knows Me uses data, I have to wonder, what do they have on me? If all you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be is recorded somewhere, and can be accessed and researched by a government intent on increasing power by selling their services to me, how do I holon to my humanity?
