In other totalitarian news

In a nice bit of Newspeak, the Bush administration has renamed the "Total Information Awareness" program "Terrorism Information Awareness". It's the same thing presumably. Large scale datamining with automatic text translation of foreign information sources. No public control. No policies for what bodies of data this new capability can be employed on.

The rise of better and better tools for analyzing the data floating around will mean that we will desire more and more data to not float around. The public space is closing.
