The FBI Is Asking For Data Overload

from the bad-plans dept

We had a post yesterday from people pointing out that the anti-terrorism bills that were being discussed wouldn’t help very much, and in reality just dumped more data on the FBI for them to sort through. Here’s a good article that goes into more detail as to why giving the FBI more access to data probably wouldn’t help. Having tons more data is useless. Having the right data would be useful… but hoping to find that right data by just sifting through all this new data is unlikely.
