"In No Place to Hide, Washington Post reporter Robert O'Harrow, Jr., lays out in detail the post-9/11 marriage of private data and technology companies and government anti-terror initiatives to create something entirely new: a security-industrial complex. Drawing on his years of investigation, O'Harrow shows how the government now depends on burgeoning private reservoirs of information about almost every aspect of our lives to promote homeland security and fight the war on terror." "Consider the following: When you use your cell phone, the phone company knows where you are and when. If you use a discount card, your grocery and prescription purchases are recorded, profiled, and analyzed. Many new cars have built-in devices that enable companies to track from afar details about your movements. Software and information companies can even generate graphical link-analysis charts illustrating exactly how each person in a room is related to every other - through jobs, roommates, family, and the like. Almost anyone can buy a dossier on you, including almost everything it takes to commit identity theft, for less than fifty dollars." "O'Harrow tells the inside stories of key players in this new world, from software inventors to counterintelligence officials. He reveals how the government is creating a national intelligence infrastructure with the help of private companies. And he examines the impact of this new security system on our traditional notions of civil liberties, autonomy, and privacy, and the ways it threatens to undermine some of our society's most cherished values, even while offering us a sense of security."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

Disturbing but fascinating at the same time. This book discusses the vast amount of information about all of us that government along with private entities have in huge databases. Not a book for a paranoid individual.
  walterqchocobo | Apr 8, 2013 |
A few quotes:
Pg 3. "...resolve crimes faster through predictive analysis help to thwart crimes before they occur." Remember the movie ,Minority Report'.
P 33. Quoting Senator Leahy, and his concern about private data brokers: "..Not determined through prosecution (and) tria, but bbased on what came up on someone's computer screen."
P 37. Describing application of private databases: "It outlines and predicts behavior."
P 50. "...no laws prohibit the collection of unlisted (phone numbers)..." Calling a telemarketer is considered implied consent to give out one's unlisted number.
P 54. Surveys usually seem anonymous. "People tell us all kinds of things they wouldn't tell their neighbors."
P 107. "We have created a unique identifier on everyone in the United States..."
P 145. Brokers use 'pretexting' or 'social engineering' to con victims into releasing information.
P 152. In 2001, "ChoicePoint said it would give the INS unlimited access to all the information for $1 million a year." Included "a nationwide listing of Mexican voters, ... a national registry of Columbians, ,,, pasport and national ID of Costa Rica citizens, ... national ID number of Argentinians and phone numbers".
P 153. Quoting Bendana, "The U.S. is going to know more about the Nicaraguan people than the Nicaraguan government."
P162. Fingerprinting goes back to the time of Babylon.
P164. People can be identified at distance by their gait.
P 171. Fingerprints can be imitated using a Gummi Bear like mixture.
P. 208. CAPPS II passenger screening.
P227, Sobel 1997 letter, "The FBI, for example, recognizes that data in its computer system of criminal records has an inaccuracy rate of 33 percent."
P 246. Quoting Ben Bell, "We have a right of passage and travel."
P 257. "In 2000, the FBI acknowledged it was using (an internet) data collection device, with the suggestive name Carnivore."
P280. Despite constitutional guarantees, "...there are no restrictions in the private sector to individuals collecting information across this country, which potentially could be a problem for the citizens of this country. (D'Amuro)
P 288. RFID in credit cards.
P 290. Metal fiber technology.
P 299. Dust technology and 'smart dust'.
