Subject: New Poll: DARPA Total Information Awareness Program - Fights Terror or Erodes Privacy?
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), began awarding contracts this month for development of a prototype "Total Information Awareness" system. The program will link many government and commercial databases and use data mining to find threatening patterns. Supporters say it will work well and help find the terrorism threats. Critics like ACLU say that it will not work but will only erode privacy.
