Is The Government Reading Your Blog?


By: Lance Winslow

We know that most people fear too much government and they fear that the government is listening into their phone calls. But in reality why would the government give a flying hoot when you are going to pick up your kids from soccer practice. Of course if you are calling overseas and talking to Al Quaeda, well they might like to know about that.

Most Bloggers are somewhat worried that the government is collecting all the information that they write on their Blogs. Of course they are, why wouldn’t they collect that information and go thru it with super computers to see who is saying or doing what? Recently a Blogger stated that they believed that the government is collecting everything they write on their Blog.

I am most certain that they are ABSOLUTELY correct on that. And there must be TeraFlops of information available and it makes sense too, as any website can be changed at any time. I like the concept of those sites, which allow you to look back in time to see the old content VS. the new. And the Government has all the old stuff as well, although keeping up with all the new personal sites and Blogs must be a real chore for them.

Since Blogs are so powerful on the Internet and now that this has become such a workable platform with consistent guidelines throughout the Internet this is helping foster the forward progression for open communication we seek in our society. Along with the Social Phenomena of Blogs and the interaction and control they offer the participants it appears that such a communication device will continue to grow as specialized groups form around the planet into networked social tribes. In one paper I have been perusing;

“Blogs – A Global Conversation” by James Torio

It appears to me that there is no end to the expansion and revolution in modern day communication and social interaction that Blogs are causing in cyberspace. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
