11/09/2003 Entry: "Data Mining and The Matrix. What next? Kaos and Spectre?"

"The Matrix is run by a private corporation -- Seisint Inc. of Boca Raton, Florida -- on behalf of a cooperative group of state governments. However, it is, at least in part, federally funded -- and may, in future, allow federal access.

"The program has received $4 million from the Justice Department. It has been promised a further $8 million from the Department of Homeland Security. In addition, news reports indicate that Matrix officials have said they are considering giving access to the CIA.

"What does the Matrix do? According to Congressional testimony and news reports, it appears to do just what TIA would have done, if enacted: Tie together government and commercial databases in order to allow federal and state law enforcement entities to conduct detailed searches on particular individuals' dossiers."
Why We Should Fear The Matrix, The "Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange" Program Threatens To Revive Total Information Awareness. By Anita Ramasastry, FindLaw, November 5, 2003

Great, now we have a private, but funded by the government, company to spy on us. Wunderbar.

"Data mining" has an ominous sound, don't it? The Matrix is just dumb branding. What next? KAOS and Spectre?
