T.I.A. or Total Information Awareness is an Orwellian example

of how technology can be used to spy on every aspect of someones life. This technology would link every aspect of someones life, to a central database, where it would be “scanned” for criminal or terrorist activity. Anyone who fit the template, under the Patriot Act, could be held indefinitely, without due process. So, Why do I worry? Simply put, this gives unchecked power to A select group of people who don’t have to show evidence to detain anyone. So, anyone they didn’t like, could easily be carted off never to be heard from again, till a secret court decides to make a trial, giving them plenty of time to manufacturer evidence.  Source Wired
