Here's the thing. The same people that have the computer and technical skills to run a venture like this are the ones who are the most likely to be against secrecy, spying and government control over the people. What's the likelihood that the govt is going to hire a bunch of people who will be only too happy to throw a monkey wrench into this whole spy center, spend their days at work reading Reddit, watching porn and geeking out rather than, y'know, combing through the 'yottabytes' of data for that supposed needle in a haystack of some 'they hate us for our freedums' type plotting an attack?

I always dreamed of being a spy, the drama involved with it would certainly make my life more interesting than it is now. Probably because my determination to preserve and record information and history, I could look past the ethics of doing it all. It just depends on which sector you get into I guess. To the NSA, even the CIA is fair game.

Well,. . .. they don't need geeks to comb through data when they have Echelon.

They might actually be hiring to put people on forums or in chat rooms to spread DisInfo.

I'm thinking it's a very safe bet that membership to a site like ATS and active posting here...probably means we're in the 'Need Not Apply' category. After all, how do you help operate a system when it's whole purpose is to spy on YOU and people just like you?

Now I understand the NSA loves hiring hackers...but that's after they're busted and it's a 'Work for us or go to prison' deal with a reminder of a cell with their name on it if they get funny about anything. Just my hunch.

Because in all honesty for some the old mantra "If you can't beat them, join them" applies.

I'm sure most of us have thought about it. There are many people who would rather count themselves and their family safe then worry about themselves, their family, and everyone else. Doing a good job for the NSA and keeping your mouth shut probably guarantees that you and your family wont be visiting any of those fema camps that they keep setting up for the unruly.... or so we hear anyhow. A job with the NSA wouldn't guarantee you are free from worry of the ever encroaching oppressive state but i'm sure one would be better off than not.

I've thought about it. My computer skills are slightly better than mediocre though.

It's pretty much a given that disinfo agents are all over the place. You can sometimes tell them by the fact that they only post during certain 'shifts' and many times, those posts are intended to disrail a thread rather than add to it.

But as far as "Echelon" goes, someone had to write those programs; what if the people hired to do the work don't agree with it in principle?

When given the option of being the "neck" or the "boot" on the neck, what do you think people will choose? There will not be a shortage of applicants.

Before you are hired you will have to pass a battery of tests and sign a non disclosure agreement. The work is probably compartmentalized to a very high degree so you might be happier if you're a B&M type J rather than a type P.

Sounds like if you break the non disclosure agreement you are likely to end up living out of a cardboard box in Taiwan??

I guess Snowden's position is also open in Hawaii?

I remember if any of those positions are for posting on ATS as a shill. Get paid to post on ATS

Oh,. .. . you mean like "Snowden"?

Welp, .. I am certain that they intend on using that 'ol boy as an example.

Just a little insurance so that any new hires might not repeat the same mistake and act with their "Moral Conscience". .. Don't you suppose??

It's usually the Life Style Polygraph that trips people up and get's them disqualified. You're right about it being compartmentalized. The "Need to Know" rules the day.
