The CERN network and ARPANET were both important internet precursors. ARPANET predates CERN's network by more than a decade

Here's a very brief overview of the history:
http://www.freesoft.org/CIE/Topics/57.htm

And now they want to do it again:
http://www.engadget.com/2007/06/29/d...tter-internet/

Don't expect any of the major allies of US intelligence to have any trouble policing this one.

GPS beacons in our cell phones that also allow remote activation of the mic, vchips and possibly microphones in household electronics, remote accessing of our computer webcams - if a teenager in his parents basement can take over your computer without you knowing, how much you want to bet any of the alphabet soup agencies headquartered in DC can too?

We may very well be one "terrorist" incident away from a sequel to Patriot Act that gives them the justification begin legally using these capabilities.

Oh and it's Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency, not administration. I always mix that one up.

hmmm I re-read the above and realise its woeful irrelevance but still, I will post it regardless as its a free country - currently.

The bit at the end of the bbc article is right:

Quote:
"Given the appalling track record of data loss, this state is simply not to be trusted with such private information," said Mr Huhne.
Knowing our government, they'll lose it all somehow due to their incompetence. And it'll only be full of spam mainly so what's the point? Do they have the Google Email Terrorist Scanner ready to find all of these web-savvy terrorrists?
