Ok, I've booleaned, googled and can't find this subject anywhere but did lose a former post to that "this subject is already here' message!
And, why isn't there a science/technology conspiracies forum? All other sectors are subject to conspiracy theories, but I've already noticed that
when I posted a subject about science conspiracy I got a lot of hater posts following. Anyway, this is NOT a complaint, it is a comment on the
Here is what I originally posted and which was erased by the warning message:
I think that some form of "thought police" really are listening. To you, and me, simple citizens that we be.
One plausible way is that DSL, for example, is a two way street, in that it not only ships info into your house, it is perfectly capable of carrying
info out as well, ie, what shows you are tuning into, maybe even conversations or even taking pictures is possible.
Yet it seems way too complicated and messy for reason, I mean how would the info from those thousands of homes be processed? Still, we who have worked
in the field are well aware that at least some of the technology exists. (And we are slowly becoming aware as a species that all things are within
reason given enough information.
Hints and flashes of insight bring about musings and enough of these can show as manifested in the outer world from what was "only" accumulative
reasoning within, if we pay close enough attention. (Einstein and Eli Whitney thought up or dreamed their successes before they were proven able to
manifest in the outer world.)
And I am totally convinced that advertisers would use everything in their power to know what we are watching and when, and to what advertisements we
are responding. I've done many market surveys and am aware of the big bucks paid for a lousy phone list, how much more a list of what people are
talking about and what they are doing?
Who better to fill the hunger than the technies that bring about the technology that fills the bill?
