When all data is available

Order an ACLU Pizza for that Total Information Awareness experience (turn on your speakers).

a) Tim O'Reilly's data collection experience:

Heck, just recently, I was shopping in Bath, England, and made a large purchase in an antiquarian bookshop. Fifteen minutes later, I was four buildings down the street in a second bookshop, tried to make another purchase, and had my card rejected. Meanwhile, back in California, my wife was receiving a call, wondering if the card had been stolen. "Why would someone halfway around the world be spending so much on books?" they wanted to know.

b) "I'm sorry Sir, you just lost your world privileges"
