BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING
Tech companies are getting ready for a big fight. The Bush administration is calling for Internet and telephone companies to keep detailed records of customers’ online activities for a period of at least two years. Frankly, that is scary.
The government wants more than just terrorism and child porn searches. According to the experts the government is saying keep everything on everyone and we will sort it out later. Companies such as Google and Qwest have been resistant to such requests. I hope other companies will follow suit.
In my opinion, the chances of exploitation are considerable. Fighting criminal activity and terrorism is one thing but opening up everything to the government is going too far.
