Quote:The story of the deliberate creation of the modern mass-surveillance state includes elements of Google’s surprising, and largely unknown, origin. It is a somewhat different creation story than the one the public has heard, and explains what Google cofounders Sergey Brin and Larry Page set out to build, and why.

But this isn’t just the origin story of Google: It’s the origin story of the mass-surveillance state, and the government money that funded it.

We all knew this, but it's nice to have verification.

Pretty ingenious to create a format or platform
where people will actually write their own dossier for government inspection.
FB comes to mind, even in light of arrests being made due to suspicious content, complaints and self policing.
And yet people still use it.
