Around 2003, DARPA’s (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Information Processing Techniques Office was pondering a project called LifeLog, a program that would enlist subscribers to squeal on their fellow Americans.
Brian Young reports that according to its bid solicitation pamphlet, it was to be “an ontology-based sub-system that captures, stores and makes accessible the flow of one person’s experience in and interactions with the world in order to support a broad spectrum of associates/assistants and other system capabilities.
The obvious objective was to trace every part of one’s life on the planet. After criticism from civil libertarians, the program was canceled on Feb. 4, 2004. So strange this was the exact date that Facebook went on line. I affectionately call it Fed-book. Sure we all know the story the Facebook movie tells us, and far be it from anyone to think that Hollywood would lie to cover the tracks of the federal government (note: sarcasm)
Rebranding as a tool constantly used by the liberal left and all of its various nefarious tentacles so it would not be any great stretch that once DARPA’s program got publicly canceled by Congress it simply was renamed and a phony back story along with actors was put into place! Coincidence? Doubtful…
