Nixon was right !
"The data mining and surveillance of government officials, allowing a constant stream of information on political backroom dealing, could create the most open democracy the world has ever seen."Nixon had various White House rooms outfitted with telephone line taps and lavalier microphones, all recorded with nine voice-activated Sony TC-800B open-reel tape recorders. Our surveillance technology is far more impressive. Surely we can do better than Nixon's spooks. Neither did he have smartphones, which we know are incredible surveillances sources, and very likely in the hand of every legislator and bureaucrat in this fair land.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: The problem is that all are now spied. And government's officials too ? Except them, except :) Thus, welcome to Orwellian 1984 :(
