Chris Soghoian’s Surveillance Metrics

I also posted about this on Emergent Chaos, but since our readership doesn’t fully overlap, I’m commenting on it here as well.

Chis Soghoian, has just posted some of his new research into government electronic surveillance here in the US. The numbers are truly astounding (Sprint for instance provided geo-location data on customers eight million times in thirteen months).

There’s lots of great data on what’s being collected versus what’s being reported as collected. I know you’ll all be shocked to know that surveillance is dramatically under reported. It’s all very very interesting. Check it out.
