The attention of The Man

Thursday, December 01, 2005
So that neat-o site usage information has already turned up one REALLY interesting tidbit of information. Someone visited my site with the IP address of 63.148.99.237. I didn't recognize the range - starting with a 24 or a 67 is usually Comcast, 71 is usually RoadRunner, 66 is Google AND Yahoo, etc. So I looked it up.

Check out Qwest Cyveillance.

That's right. They're scanning MY writings for things like:

  • Executive Threats

  • Corporate Brand Abuse

  • Information Leaks and Insider Threats

  • Online Credit Card Fraud

  • Activism


I'm getting the chills already. Now of course I'm harmless (I'm a dissident, not a criminal), but the idea of being WATCHED by either our corporate or govermental masters is creepy in an Orwellian 1984 sort of way.

Remember, kids: War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.
