Are the Evildoers on MySpace?


The Pentagon wants to monitor MySpace.

Pentagon sets its sights on social networking websites

Looking for cheap dates, my friends?
"I AM continually shocked and appalled at the details people voluntarily post online about themselves." So says Jon Callas, chief security officer at PGP, a Silicon Valley-based maker of encryption software. He is far from alone in noticing that fast-growing social networking websites such as MySpace and Friendster are a snoop's dream.

New Scientist has discovered that Pentagon's National Security Agency, which specialises in eavesdropping and code-breaking, is funding research into the mass harvesting of the information that people post about themselves on social networks.
Are you guys looking for evildoers...or 15 year old girls?
You should always assume anything you write online is stapled to your resumé. People don't realise you get Googled just to get a job interview these days," says Callas.
Well, I'm fucked.

Guess I'm stuck in LaLa land.

Go Dodgers.
