Exclusive: Google, CIA Invest in 'Future' of Web Monitoring


www.wired.com

The investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future.

The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come.

Here goes the next step in the destruction of privacy on the net. Now that they can boot server providers, bloggers, and anyone else they deem a threat to security (basically anyone that practices free speech anymore on the net), they are ramping things up by trying to predict where threads will lead.


“We’re right there as it happens,” Ahlberg told Danger Room as he clicked through a demonstration. “We can assemble actual real-time dossiers on people.”


This is just another way for them to track events of people that they are already monitoring. I can see this being used to predict rallies and riots. They would be able to test for population preparedness in the event of disaster. How about finding out more about the armed militias and find ways to infiltrate them or spy on them more closely.


"Recorded Future allows financial analysts, intelligence analysts, and predictors to organize and aggregate future observations with ease,"
~Boston Globe

All of the things above are just another measure of control to be enforced on people under the guise of National Security. And the Sheeple Baa-ed AMEN.

"Connected to the Google, connected to the Government."
--The Message by M.I.A.'s album "Maya"

I get this sneaking suspicion that some day I'm going to regret having so much of my life tied up and connected to Google.

Fooling the masses is too easy.. a few years ago I remember a friend of me saying:
"Google wouldn't do anything bad.. their motto is 'Don't be evil'."

This is really scary.. if a motto is enough to reassure the people of the good intentions of corporations then the governments sophisticated propaganda would probably be nigh impossible to see through for the average joe. Where will this madness end up taking us?

I'm so tired of the never ending bad news. We don't have a lot of time.

This is a dangerous trend google is setting and it has overstepped its authority. It will and needs to be brought down or scale its invasive practices. The google chrome is a very important spy tool used by google.

They can know what porn I watch or what comments I make on fora like ATS.... as long as they realize that most of what people put online is a distortion of the reality...

Unfortunately most of the CIA employees have no clue what reality is.

I tend to agree with this train of thought.

First of all, I do use GMAIL, but I refuse to use Chrome. I knew from the very beginning what Chrome was all about and even told everyone I know to stay away from it. I have been suggesting that everyone remove the Google toolbar from their computer. I have also begun to change my mind drastically about this whole "cloud computing" environment that they have developed. Businesses basically turning over all of their secrets to a company that is locked in with the president, NASA and 2 government spy agencies. Not A Chance In Hades!!

So, the CIA front known as Google:

knows everything you do online, because they all but own it (shared with Cisco)
can locate anyone using one of their smartphone apps or Android based phones
has access to millions of corporate documents through their cloud computing business model, which they get paid to manage
has rights and time paid for on all of NASAs satellites, since they partnered up with them
now developing a tech along the lines of the webbot project or akin to "Minority Report"
has the official seal of endorsement from Obama

Yea...might be time to start unloading some of that Google tech from my computer.

Google continues it's strive to take over the world!

Yet they have managed to ruin their image search function with no option to go back to the former. If they can make a fundamental mistake such as this they can be stopped


Image search was their best feature aside from earth IMO. I'm not that worried about the info they would have on me but it is only a matter of time before that changes.

You know what? That's just megacreepy. The future. Right. Thanks for posting the video.

I refuse to install chrome and rarely use Google anymore for anything of relevance I firmly believe but have not yet proved it is outright blocking some searches and also there are some very strange things happening where the stories you think it's linking to are more and more often absolutely not related to the keywords you've entered.

The main results page will say the link contains the keywords, and the descriptive paragraph agrees, but when you click the link, the page contains neither. If you hover the link it says one thing but then you get redirected to some weird sites (aside from ad sites). Started tracking this just last week because it was driving me nuts, and sure enough in a day I had three solid examples. Then the next day it didn't work that way on two of them.

I also believe either they installed a huge batch of spyware or something a few months back, somehow related to Google analytics. Either that or someone hacked them bad and they didn't find it forever. Things were all over the board crazy for about two months.

A webbot that costs 150 bucks a month to use...

If they were really developing this thing to keep the public "under control", why would they make it available to THE PUBLIC?


I'm not saying that Google with the CIA isn't a threat to internet privacy or free speech...but if they were truly creating this software with ulterior motives behind it, I don't think they would commercialize it.

Then again, what do I know...

So what search Engines do people suggest we use if not google?

What ones can we trust to help protect out data so we are sure it's not being captured?

What other tools are needed to help with this besides another search engine?

Can anyone suggest a better more secure browser?


That's another thing.. our windows/firefox spell checker forces us to capitalize google or at least it underlines it telling us it's misspelled. The very nerve of them.

rufusthestuntbum: Chrome is not the fastest. In fact the longer you use it the slower and more resource hungry it gets.

If you want true speed you have to cut down on a lot of addons like java and flash. a simple browser like "Off by One" is great but it gives very little extras. I too would like to have some better alternatives for a good fast browser with the basic needs, images, flash and java that's faster than the popular ones.

This has been building for decades though.

Yet no one wants to actually do a damn thing about it.

They will complain, whine, and bitch about it, but ultimately that becomes impotent whimpering, devoid of actually taking responsible action, and forcing the legislation to change.

The World-Wide Web of Surveillance of Your Online/Offline Activities

Instead of getting off their keisters, and making waves, they would rather sit on their haunches, and do nothing, except talk of violence, picking up guns, and idiocy.

And this is exactly what Government wants, which only makes it easier to do this type of monitoring via the Internet, because of the keywords used which assists them.

If people talked intelligently, about being involved within politics, making their community stronger through personal involvement, commitment to the correct actions, this never would have had a possibility to have begun, let alone happen.

No Place To Hide : Face Recognition, Information Data-Mining, and Loss of Anonymity

But because people strike out through violence, demand their rights, without actually responsibly standing for them, and actually do something, non-violently, because they would rather sit out this round, and allow someone else to become politicians, they are literally not only to blame, but the entire problem itself.

If you are not a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem, you are in fact the problem itself.

Voting is not the end of our responsibility, it is the beginning of it, community involvement is necessary, reading books, running for local offices, volunteering to work within the poll office, being a part of the solution.

How To Overthrow Your Own Government, Legally and Without Violence, In Order To Survive

We legally have the right to stop all of this nonsense, if done with reasonable expectations, if done responsibly, if done through foreign and domestic policy.

If however, people think that they will pick guns, they are sadly deluded.

This will only guarantee the "Police State" gets exactly what it wants.

Complete and total control.

And it quite literally is almost too late to do a damn thing about it.
