Who's Listening? #BigData

The thing is, had the powers that be went before the proper procedures and asked for permission in a public forum before those authorized to grant permission, it would never have happened.

That's why the "Data Tapping" occurred in secrecy without formal permission.

You see, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

And you cloak it around "National Security" who's going to question it.

And now that cat's out of the bag, who can stop it?

It's all happening behind the curtains.

So public figures are telling people that the "Data Tapping" is simply looking for patterns of communication.

And perhaps crossing the lines of surveillance by reading people's private emails, text, etc.

Big Data, if used for dark purposes, is a weapon.  Unfortunately there's a good chance this is the case.  Even more unfortunate, they're using it against the people they are supposed to be protecting.
