The Domain Awareness System (DAS), developed by Microsoft engineers working with the NYPD, will link around 3,000 cameras - primarily in Manhattan's financial and business districts at first - with suspects' arrest records, related crimes, licence plate readers and other data to build a real-time portrait of the individual under scrutiny.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the system had been created by police officers, detectives and software developers working in a "dynamic partnership between NYPD and the Microsoft Corporation".

You'll know, when you finally get off grid, and one still night, it approaches you, in your middle of nowhere haven, where you went to escape the self replicating net of technofascism, and tries to give the nerves you grew, like roots into heaven and earth, your spirit, a crew cut. There will be no gentle knock, nor battering ram, used on your barricaded door. Power just can't get enough of itself, and that's what makes a God take notice that we could use a little help. That is why I reserve the right to hate. Shove your clear eyes, little lambs, right back into your heads, and take a look. Recognize a slaughter when you see one.
