Yale, Sorry for the delay. I don't get comments very often. I think what happened is that I have an article, the one you commented on on the struggling millennials and I also somewhere else on my blog I have a poem by Octavio Paz or a reference to one of his books of poetry. So the millennial issue and Octavio Paz may only be connected by the fact that they are on the same blog. It's an important issue and one that is not being reported on in the mainstream media. Thanks for keeping this issue alive.
The NSA's vacuum-cleaner collection of metadata is highly intrusive, providing government snoops with vast information about people's lives. That's bad enough. But the NSA, using the latest digital technology, is able to squirrel away the content of telephone, e-mail and text communications -- in effect, "TiVo-ing" it all, available for later retrieval. "Metadata, if you were doing it and putting it into the systems we built, you could do it in a 12-by-20-foot room for the world," Binney explained. "That's all the space you need. You don't need 100,000 square feet of space that they have in Bluffdale to do that. You need that kind of storage for content."
