Let me preface this by saying I'm not a big fan of the web bots and Clif High. Here
is a link to a
description of what they do. They've had some hits like 9/11, the Sumatran earthquake and Katrina but also many misses. The theory of it all is that
humans are intrinsically psychic and can send out premonitions, if you will, of the future before it happens. They find this through language
analysis. They have a web spider that goes out and downloads snippits of internet chatter, then they map this into data sets and put it on a
But what really intrigues and worries me is that in the beginning of March, their data runs into a "hard stop", or their data plateaus and just starts
to drop off. Clif seems to believe this could be related to SOPA
Here's what he has to say, from the webbotforum:
SOPA puts us here at hph out of business. From what i hear, it will be implemented by
executive order if not passed. Further friends in the telephony industry tell me that officialdom
already has the MS software developed for China censorship ready to implement at the dns
and bit levels. If not passed, the executive order version goes into effect march 1.
do not know if SOPA will be stopped or not. The March discontinuity will overtake everything,
seemingly changing our focus from that point forward. Different from a tipping point, more of
a flattening point, but end result will be similar levels of change.
The data gap is possibly the result of SOPA. If so, hell of a forecast as we have had that
years before they even wrote sopa.
Whether or not it would actually happen is speculation on this point. But I thought I might as well bring this to your attention as it opens up a
possibility for SOPA I hadn't considered: being passed by executive order.
