You’re Finally Somebody


You should be proud. You are now a household name. At least in the NSA. The New York Times reported yesterday that the NSA has been putting together some fantastic graphs using your social connections. The graphs identify your friends, relatives, neighbors and a few other minor details like where you are at certain times of the day, who you are with, etc.
Oh yea, the information the NSA uses to create the graphs comes from the places you thought was pretty private – things like bank codes, insurance information, Facebook, passenger manifests, tax records, property records, voter registration and that constant snitch: your cellphone. Yep, your cell phone sends GPS.
You’re finally somebody. Are you surprised?
