It seems that big business are not the only ones interested in tracking online blogs, the CIA has launched an initiative to track the blogosphere.
As OSC Director Douglas J. Naquin told The Washington Times, “A lot of blogs now have become very big on the Internet, and we’re getting a lot of rich information on blogs that are telling us a lot about social perspectives and everything from what the general feeling is to â€¦ people putting information on there that doesn’t exist anywhere else.”
I’m always looking for new readers, so, early next week, I’ll be revealing the secret location of Osama Bin Laden, showing your where Sadam Hussein keeps his nuclear weapons and reveal all about Area 51. – that should get the spooks driving up my visitor count.
[Actually, I've told people before that I weren't in this business, working for a government agency to help track crime using online clues, would be a great job.]
Thanks to David!
