Big Data and The Surveillance Society

We kill people based on metadata. – Gen. Michael Hayden, former head of the NSA and CIA.
Bene vixit, bene qui latuit. (To live well is to live concealed) – – Ovid (43 BC – 18 AD)
The most sacred thing is to be able to shut your own door. – G.K. Chesterton (1874 – 1936).
I don’t know why people are so keen to put the details of their private lives in public; they forget that invisibility is a superpower. – Banksy (2006)

Big Data and The Surveillance Society is an omnibus of Greenteeth Labyrinth / Daily Stirrer posts on the surveillance society, the unsuspected (by most people) levels of collaboration between government and international governance agencies and computer / internet technology giants such as Microsoft, Google, Apple and Facebook.

Because an omnibus post becomes a very long page, we have introduced active contents lists – brows the contents table, click on a title and skip to that location on the page. Then us ‘Return to Contents’ to go back to the list, navigate to another post in our network via the navigation table, or of course abandon us and move on.
