I do believe so.

Also, there's this:


Silicon Valley, President Obama just can’t quit you. In the Bay Area and free this weekend? Got 35K to toss around? Well if you’ve ever wanted to meet an in-office President now’s your chance to attend an Obama fundraiser dinner, going down at Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s house in Atherton on Sunday the 25th.

This Obama “Victory Fund 2012” dinner at the 5th most powerful woman in the world’s house comes after the President made appearances at Google exec Marissa Mayer’s Palo Alto house last fall (at a comparable $30K a pop) and attended an exclusive meetup in February at Kleiner Perkins VC John Doerr’s house — Where the guest list included Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz, Cisco’s CEO John Chambers, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Genentech Chairman Art Levinson, Google CEO Eric Schmidt and VC Steve Westly Doerr. Obama also hung out at Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff’s house in April.

I have followed the Q saga from the beginning. Not an easy fete! What you are talking about may reference "Black Mirror". Maybe that is the "Mirror" reference. Just a thought. We are in a very distopian (sp) reality right now. It all connects. If you haven't seen any episodes, I would suggest it. Crazy stuff! Especially coming from someone trying to raise a family.

It doesn't look like I linked it correctly. There was an episode called, "The Entire History of You"

I find it quite funny how quickly people forget the Snowden leaks, he basically showed how certain intelligence agencies have secret deals with the big social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. Zuckerberg didn't say anything much in these conferences yet people seem more mad now about their privacy being violated compared to when Snowden exposed a mass surveillance program... If people knew the true extent to which their privacy has been violated they would throw a fit. Even if you just browse the web without any form of tracking protection or adblocker you're giving more data to the tracking companies than Cambridge Analytica could ever hope for.

Don't forget Microsoft. Snowden revealed that Prism data collection is enabled by backdoors from Microsoft, Google, Facebook etc. Windows was leaking information since day 1 and was one of the worst offender.

Linux is the way to go if you value your privacy.

Great work here J&C!

Interesting connections you have found to DARPA!

Worryingly enough, these seem to parallel similar connections to
the CIA and Facebook. Back in about 1962, the CIA published
what was known as Factbook.

Then there are the connections to the DOD, and more,
Including the Information Awareness Office.


Notice the pyramid and the "eye".
All of this has forever been about data mining.


Facebook's first round of venture capital funding ($US500,000) came from former Paypal CEO Peter Thiel. Author of anti-multicultural tome 'The Diversity Myth', he is also on the board of radical conservative group VanguardPAC.

The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999.

One of the company's key areas of expertise are in "data mining technologies". Breyer also served on the board of R&D firm BBN Technologies, which was one of those companies responsible for the rise of the internet. Dr Anita Jones joined the firm, which included Gilman Louie. She had also served on the In-Q-Tel's board, and had been director of Defence Research and Engineering for the US Department of Defence.

It was when a journalist lifted the lid on the DARPA's
Information Awareness Office that the public began to show concern at its information mining projects.

Wikipedia's IAO page says: "the IAO has the stated mission to gather as much information as possible about everyone, in a centralised location, for easy perusal by the United States government, including (though not limited to) internet activity, credit card purchase histories, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records, educational transcripts, driver's licenses, utility bills, tax returns, and any other available data.".


Not surprisingly, the backlash from civil libertarians led to a Congressional investigation into DARPA's activity, the Information Awareness Office lost its funding.


Imagine that! So the IAO lost it's funding, but is that
where Farcebook picked up where they left off?

www.nzherald.co.nz...

It is concerning to go back and read these articles that are
over 10 years aged and think that people were warned
well in advance. But they were lulled into the trap.

Even reported on CBS news...



You don't need to wear a tinfoil hat to believe that the CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people.

That's because the CIA publishes a helpful list of press releases on all the social media ventures it sponsors, via its technology investment arm In-Q-Tel.

The companies that take In-Q-Tel's money aren't shy about publicizing what they're up to, either. Most recently, GeoSemble announced an update to its GeoXray product, which monitors social media chatter based on location


www.cbsnews.com...

And then there is the issue of insider trading,
and of all things traded it is folks personal
information. How many congress critters
were asking Zuck questions for their own
personal benefit.

1984 was not fiction.....it was a prediction.

As always,

S&F

Are we closing the gap?
What are they working on now?

That's because snowden was sold to the public as a traitor, so with that most people were enraged at him leaking secrets, but not looking at the implications of it. The government have great psyops, they literally can getaway with murder and have someone take the fall for them.

Part of what causes many people concern with the information Facebook and similar applications gathers and retains on us is the possibility for government intrusion into our live. Upon further reading of the .pdf inked in the OP, I came across the following footnote:


86 See James Plummer, “Data Retention”: Costly Outsourced Surveillance, TechKnowledge Issue No 99 (Cato Institute Jan 22, 2007), online at www.cato.org... (visited Jan 12, 2008):

The Justice Department has been beating the drums since last spring for a “data retention” law that would require Internet service providers to warehouse records of their customers’ online activity for the convenience of government investigators. Most recently, FBI Director Robert Mueller called for such a measure at a law-enforcement convention last October. But the idea has found vocal proponents on both sides of the aisle. Data retention may rear its head again in the 110th Congress.


Anyone else see a familiar name above? Might be interesting to see if a transcript of the aforementioned talk at the law-enforcement convention in question can be found.

Robert Mueller again eh?
By now he has worked his way up to Gatekeeper.

So glad President Trump opened my eyes to all of this....

I seriously doubt that it is shut down, they never shut massive projects like this and especially when this is an agenda dating a hundred years back. It is most likely to be a public announcement because of the current events and the public losing trust in social media and government surveillance. They want to distance themselves so no one will suspect them and potentially shut down the project for real. The Zuckerberg hearing was a complete joke and proved nothing except that there are still a lot of people supporting him and EvilBook. Also no one is talking about Goevil and ThemTube who are a much bigger concern.
They like to throw sand in our eyes and hope we drop the issue...

Of course the idea of a life log is not bad by itself, but I think it should be done personally by the people who want to store their life and their information should only be owned by them and not stored in centralized servers owned by corporations!
