I've been musing over something since we started hearing about confirmations to things ranging from Echelon to the inner workings of the NSA itself.
It's a bit of a problem, actually, but no ready solution has come to me so it's been left as one of those things to fester in the back of my
By way of comparisons for context, little is known about the Data centers Google requires and has built at key digital/geographic nexus points around
the world. What has come out in magazines like Wired and others though, is that they are massive in both scale and expense. They're being added
regularly enough to be remarkable on scale.....and they are just an internet company in the end.
The NSA is assimilating everything Google already does either directly or in parallel for baseline starting points, and then going much much
to basically be their own Search Engine to everything. ...Google requires many of these cutting edge, high tech data super
centers...to do much less
So where are the NSA's data processing centers? NOT storage and NOT archiving centers, but processing centers? They need whole Super-Centers just for
archiving and they have them. Tooele, Utah and Ft Meade among them.
So what got my bunny whiskers to twitching? Well, it was a lightbulb moment as I was looking for something else entirely and everything clicked. Where
is the processing network to put Google to rightful shame?
Has anyone considered some degree of the distributed computing
network? Imagine ...how
would you, the user, really KNOW that's SETI being run? (as a random example with no special meaning) The whole purpose of distributed computing is
near unlimited power across vast areas by simply using the idle time of computers no one is using or looking at anyway.
Wouldn't that just be the ultimate conspiracy to discover had truth to it?
Happy New Year into a brave new world...I think.
