1. I read this and while I don’t think that there is anything that you would share on Facebook that would not be available with a diligent search of the internet, it is potentially convenient to have it in one spot.

    I wondered why the CIA Venture Capital Fund would want to invest so much money in the project however if there was not an interest in spying into peoples lives. What is the motivation there?

  2. Dunno… to make money? 😛

    56 million ppl on a social network trading information – someone wake up ASIO?

  3. Facebook currency? Acebucks?

    It was an interesting article and there was some hilarious feedback, eg somebody got too many vampire bites and not enough werewolf hugs. heh
    While of course we all need to be sensible with putting personal information online, but I do wonder if people who are scared of the CIA getting their information off Facebook are also as concerned about the way their information is tracked elsewhere?
    eg ” Yes please, I’ll use frequent point schemes, use Gmail for all my communications, use web forums, put photos online, use a mobile phone and text messaging,etc etc but no I won’t use Facebook”

  4. I suppose the CIA needs to make some serious bucks so that they can run all the off balance sheet activities that they do so well.

    I was reading a piece today written by Chalmers Johnston… He said:”By 1990, the value of the weapons, equipment, and factories devoted to the Department of Defense was 83% of the value of all plants and equipment in American manufacturing”.

    That was before they started investing in social networks!
