The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was the world's first operational packet switching network and the core network of a set that came to compose the global Internet. The network was funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) which later evolved into the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the United States Department of Defense for use by its projects at universities and research laboratories in the US. The packet switching of the ARPANET was based on designs by Lawrence Roberts of the Lincoln Laboratory.

dont think i've ever seen a link for the NSA website posted so how can there
be switching from here to there? i haven 't been to the NSA site that i can remember so
have no idea if they have links to here. but as someone mentioned i would think theyd have
a way to hide their tracks.
can anyone show me an example of a nsa link from here?
Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.

What are the odds of NSA being next to ATS on it haha O.o
It means a lot of people that visit ATS also visit the NSA site (and/or vice versa, but I'd imagine the majority of the correlation is ATS linking to NSA). Makes perfect sense really.

Just for fun typed in some porn sites- NOTHING!!! lol. .. guess there are a lot of gaps on this so called "map"
You simply aren't typing in porn sites which are popular enough. It doesn't list small low traffic websites. Try something like pornhub.com. The porn area appears to be near the bottom right of the internet universe.edit on 28/7/2012 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)

The NSA have the technology and resources to monitor anything, anytime and anyone.
It's not actually relevant if the owners of this site are linked to them or not anyway.

I couldn't help but notice your note on my way to get some sleep and it brought something to mind...
When you look into the abyss, the abyss looks into you.
How close do you figure you have to get to the most extensive set of computer experts and professional paranoids the world has ever produced....for them to glance back at ya just out of curiosity?

Funny this gets brought up. A couple of years ago I witnessed a member bring this to the attention of ATS. He showed how the ip's all led back to the DoD. There was actually another conspiracy site created out of all this madness. Lots of members were banned and some left willingly, no longer trusting the 'owners' of ATS.edit on 28-7-2012 by Ear-Responsible because: (no reason given)
