Thoughts on Voting

"The people who cast the votes don't decide an election; the people who COUNT the votes do." -- Joseph Stalin

Is FACEBOOK a Good Idea?

Keeping an Eye on Your Information

Voluntary Government Surveillance

When Alexander Solzhenitsyn was arrested by Joseph Stalin's political police, his captors got lost. Solzhenitsyn, a war hero (Stalin distrusted and hated war heroes), showed them how to read the map and get to where they were going. That's what millions of Americans are doing now. Putting far more personal information that they should about themselves online for easy mining. Do you know who reads the personal information you put online and for what purpose? Maybe you should.

    All of them. Digg, myspace you name it can be mined for specific types of information.

    Someone must have some vast storage space somehweres.
