  1. FBI plans social network map alert mash-up application

    The FBI is seeking to develop an early-warning system based on material "scraped" from social networks. It says the application should provide information about possible domestic and global threats superimposed onto maps "using mash-up technology".

    The bureau has asked contractors to suggest possible solutions including the estimated cost.

    I wonder how the goons are going to mine information about threats ....... one example could be that if someone uses the word 'terrorist' they immediately get some attention from these people :rolleyes:
