Last week, according to National Security Agency and Defense Information Agency experts, there were more than 180 million blogs all over the world. The bloggers are frustrated would-be editors, journalists, private detectives and a multitude of others craving recognition for their special knowledge in a wide variety of subjects and specialties. A blog and an attitude are the only requirements to become an instant pundit with a worldwide audience.
Hmmm, a blog and an attitude, sounds much like the InstaPundit vice the generic version refered to. And if that 180 million number is close to correct Glenn better get linkin, he is falling behind the curve. That aside, there is more of interest here, the intelligence agencies trolling your blog.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, prodded by the NSA, is now trying to figure out how to vacuum clean these electronic-bulletin boards for coded messages in seemingly innocuous phrases. Blogs would greatly facilitate the coordination of terrorist acts at the same time in different parts of the world. The cyber Hoover would be a super google.com that already processes information with giant databases and super computers capable of several trillion operations per second. (One trillion seconds ago was 29,000 years before Jesus Christ.)
So next time you have a Hoover vacuum salesman at your door and he says: “Hi I’m from Hoover, and I’m here to help you,” look at him with a leery eye and ask, “which one the Hoover corporation or the government hoover operation?”
As they say, read the rest, that includes a brief mention to Glenn, the MSM, Eason Jordan, Dan Rather and Dan Gillmore’s book We the media.
