Too Much Information is the sober hangover after the digital party has run out of memes, apps and schemes. Host Benjamen Walker finds out that, in a world where everyone overshares the truth 140 characters at a time, telling tales might be the most honest thing to do.

TMI's intro song - make some coffee, be done, come back, song still playing, missed nothing

exactly. stay away from the net because metadata is not encryptable most of the time, but it's enough to track you and your network of people.

but how does this meta data set off alarms? we should look at this person because they bought a couple of gas grills on amazon?
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 6:19pm the glowing one:

algorithms. they find correlations that connect search cirteria to individuals. it's all done by machines. in real-time 24/7.

and the sad thing, it doesn't even work to prevent terror attacks. there's blatant lack of evidence it does. yet the reaction to such attacks which those mechanisms failed to prevent is to call for more bogus surveillance. it's kafkaesk.

hah! there's a new old expression for the relationship between the government and the citizens: cold war.

yeah I suppose they could try some kind of AI, check patterns of known criminals and use those to generate algorithms to try to identify prospective criminals, sounds ok in theory, though I certainly don't advocate it

Native advertising is harder to block with ad blockers. Huge advantage. But readers get put off by native advertising just the same... once they've spotted it. So in the end it might be even more damaging than regular ads.

Listening to Phil Collins equals pain. I can concur with that.

That sound's like all 60's "post" artists in the world. If it's not from the 60's then that's a problem...
