Fair enough, Wise One. But I'm not letting MT anywhere near this shack until he rids himself his garlic and whiskey breath. Geez.

I think one of my minor points here is that it ain't half bad an idea at all to collect all the transactionals that can be collected/generated - even if the tools and needs aren't quite yet upon us at present so as to make optimal use of these mounds of amassed transactionals.

When such time arrives as to render us equipped with the appropriate tools and queries to completely exploit present day transactionals, it will be nice to realize that someone called our own had the foresight to collect the substrate needed upon which we might deploy novel tools and queries for competitively advantageous reason.

Noteworthy be it perhaps in this context to point out that these transactionals can be mined for goodies whose relevance extends beyond the time frame from which the transactionals were captured.

If transactionals are lost per way of not being captured during effervescent generation then they are lost forever. As we at present are producing more quality transactionals than our enemies and global competitors, we are thereby creating more exploitable informational real estate, and a head start in this informational/transactional land creation scheme should not be squandered. It would be akin to dumping high-grade gold ore out to sea because of a temporary chokes in refining capabilities.

That we failed to capture the transactionals of originating yesteryear need not negate the value of getting our act together sometime thereafter - especially when we manage to do so ahead of our still lagging competitors.

Now, not a few unsuspecting citizens would be most surprised by some of the specific transactionals being captured because of their forgivable prejudices related to privacy. We will touch on these transactionals in subsequent posts as we are still in the process collecting OSINT corroboration for such claims.

I may be wrong here M-1. SIGINT type stuff is not my field, which is why I'd like to hear Tanji opine, if he is able, given his prior employment.

The USG has tried to read what it deemed it must from the days of monitoring Western Union and FBI clerks opening mail. Perhaps "mapping" and "sucking it all up" are really two different questions, here and the second would have allowed a way to do the former. I'm just a little skeptical about the sheeer number of variables as the internet really took off in the late 1990's

Greetings, honorable Count Pundit von Zen

I appreciate your, per usual, reflective commentary. I am inclined however to take issue with your statement the post presupposes that the USG had the foresight (and capability) to map the step by step expansion of the internet/WWW from 1995 forward.

Not at all, I profess. Not at all. In fact, I do not quite understand why you so presuppose. Do explain if you can steal the time to do so. Perhaps I'm missing something here. (It's usually my fault when I stand bewildered)

I shall return to Catch-All and address one of the rather brilliant (and primary at that) aspects of the program. For the moment though,I dare profess that not devising and implementing Catch-All would've been downright irresponsible when judged from a perspective that places value on national competitiveness and global primacy - aspects that dwarf the programs possible utility value when it comes to shaking out the occasional bearded & confused whacko besieged by dreams of asymmetric justice.

Three hints on where I'm going with this:

1 Hong Kong International Airport

2 Origins of crude oil and natural gas

Exceedingly interesting post.

My poor understanding of the internet is that it has not yet been accurately mapped. That there are "continents" of activity that are effectively "dark" by virtue of being isolated from the mainstream of net traffic.

I'm not a tech guy, so my comment here is speculative, but the post presupposes that the USG had the foresight (and capability) to map the step by step expansion of the internet/WWW from 1995 forward.

I'm somewhat skeptical we had the computing power at the time, much less the ability to anticipate the direction network growth before network theory had been postulated, disseminated, understood and adapted to by math whiz types. The complexity would seem to be daunting. Like playing three dimensional chess with a board that you assemble yourself atom by atom. If we're that good, icing Bin Laden should be cake.

Tanji should comment on this one.
