Skip to comments.New study shows NSA phone metadata can reveal EVERYTHING about your life
Posted on 03/13/2014 7:45:41 PM PDT by gooblah
New research published by Stanford Univeristy Wednesday reveal phone and Internet metadata collected by the NSA can expose far more information about an individual than the agency admits, including, medical conditions, financial and legal connections, and even whether they own a gun.
Two of the schools computer science graduate students were able to uncover the sensitive personal details of individuals from phone data details, like the numbers of callers and recipients, the location of callers, phone serial numbers and the length of conversations all of which are data the signals intelligence agency collects in bulk both domestically and internationally.

If you haven’t done anything wrong why would you care? /s
Ok, NSA, so how may fingers am I displaying right now?
Conspiracy Nut-job Pig-worthy?
Only if you put it in the public via the web and phone.
I presented some of my doctoral research at a conference in New Orleans this summer. One of the keynote speakers talked about this. Computer science people are generally a liberal-leaning bunch, but the entire audience was universally libertarian on this point. You can find out essentially everything about a person from their “metadata” and the point was that whether the NSA associates the metadata directly with a person or not is irrelevant since it’s uniquely correlated to you anyway.
In other words, **** the NSA.
Those b@stards are most likely claiming MY Meatloaf Recipe as their own by now!
Academics, yes. Practitioners, no.
Most people in the trenches are apolitical or libertarian.
Not only do I not need your meta data to tell you how many you are holding up, I can even tell which one it is!
Imagine the metadate God has on each of us: words, actions,thoughts, motives....
Anyone "in the life" knew from the beginning that you can find out just about everything you need to know about a call from its jacket and by datamining all of the interconnections within a cohort.
People who bought the excuse that "it was only metadata" were either stupid, ignorant of the facts, or deliberately lying.
Except Candle Jack.
Resist all you want.....jus’ sayin’....
Content is not metadata.
they won’t get much from ours.
We have texting blocked on our dumb phones and rarely make a phone call, like 2 per week maybe.
“Candle Ja.........”. Oh, crap!
Ah, but can they find the point of resolve...
Time for Dis-information campaign. Load them with opposites.
“I love to bike ride with my flower helmut.”
“Can’t wait for all those vehicle black boxes.”
“Just received my book on becoming a vegetarian”
“Ordered my electric lawnmower yesterday.”
“Calculate the value of “pi”
What if a motel chain decided to install hidden video cameras in all of their motel rooms
with a “promise” that they would only review the tapes if they had reason to believe
that a crime “might have been committed” by one of the occupants?
That’s metadata in itself.
The NSA is probably very suspicious of those it has little info on... probably a conservative FR type.
But with that post, you correlated “Candle Jack” with “FredZarguna.”
Sorry bud, you’re toast.
The NSA has waited years for this break, and you finally slipped up.
I intend to, thanks.
The #s are still heavily on our side.
Attrition = we win.
Ruthlessness = we win sooner.
If they’ve found anything good about me I wish they’d tell me and God.
“If you havent done anything wrong why would you care? /s”
Ah, but you have done something wrong.
I vote 3.14
We didn’t know that already?
The hated EXEMPT in the US Congress only care
when the metadata is about one of them.
The EXEMPT Patricians are soooooooooooooo special
they are not even under the “laws” they generate
(unread) for their non-Moslem slaves (once free Americans).
As soon as I am done reviewing it!
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
I only answer to the name ....”Keyser Söze”. ;)
Speaker John Boehner is shirking his Constitutional Duty by not issuing Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama.
Removal from Office by the US Senate can ONLY be accomplished AFTER a perp. is Impeached by the US House.
The House is the Police, and the Senate is the Judge and Jury.
First the House must Impeach the POS.
Then the Senate determines if the Impeached POS should be removed from office.
Most FReepers fall in the all or nothing camp and only want a clear path to removal.
Our Constitution makes it very clear: Impeach first by the House, and then have the Senate decide on Removal.
The objective is to punish all those who violate their sacred oaths to defend the US Constitution.
A bi-weekly Impeachment of B. Hussein Obama would be needed to punish him for all of his Constitutional violations over the last 5 years, but I will be satisfied with just one Impeachment.
Obamas Removal from Office by the US Senate would be good for America, but Reids Senate has not yet demonstrated any interest in what is good for America.
Since the RINOs have control of the US House of Representatives in 2014, 2014 is the last year that we can be certain that Obama could be Impeached.
The RINOs assume that they will maintain control of the US House, but their usual desire to lose to Democrats is so strong, that their assumption may not be a valid one.
Impeach B. Hussein Soetoro-Obama in 2014, PERIOD.
OTOH, I'm inclined to think of
law enforcement and
intelligence agencies as less useful than pigs lately. (At least pigs can turn garbage into bacon.)
The difference is that it isn't twisted, abused and cherry picked, or otherwise manipulated to falsely accuse or bear false witness.
The lawful citizen fears the data collection done by evil people, especially now that expectation of privacy is equated with "hiding something".
In the final judgment the nosy data abusers will be griping at God when the list of their own personal behavior is unfurled before them and judged righteously... while those who were falsely accused/abused/fined/fired/incarcerated and/or death paneled by manipulated metadata will be walking by, buzzed right on through the gates.
Let’s get off the topic of meatloaf and onto the topic of chili.
To the NSA reading this, you are a travesty upon freedom, and no... you’re not getting any chili.
At one time I thought about getting a cell phone. Then I read that you can be tracked anytime you’re carrying the phone.
That’s when I decided I didn’t need the phone.
“The lawful citizen fears the data collection done by evil people...”
That’s a reason why they don’t speak out on the issues. (They forget that Jesus promises He’ll fight their battles for them.)
Saturday night and you’re still hangin’ around
Tired of living in your one horse town
you’d like to find a little hole in the ground,
So you go to the village in your tie dyed jeans
And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens
It’s like some pornographic magazine
And you smile
Candle Jack will get you high tonight
And take you to your special island
Candle Jack will get you by tonight
Just a little push, and you’ll be smilin’
That is precisely what I am thinking.
Too bad we don’t have any angry birds to shoot at that piggie
Candle Jack? Captain Jack right.
How could that possibly be? It's a field where you produce something that either works or doesn't, objectively judge-able, and whether or not it works is based on real facts and rules and logic, not feelings. How could any liberal possibly compete in such a field.
