Another Day, Another Database
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes Nanny ignores the fact that she "doesn't do IT" nor data security at all well, and has decided to create yet another database that will poke into the daily lives and communications of her subjects.
This time she intends to monitor the daily communications, and verbal diarrhea, of those who use social networking sites such as Faecesbook, Bimbo and MySpace etc.
Nanny wants to monitor messages sent via these sites, and add them to her planned database that will store information about every phone call, e-mail and internet visit made by everyone in the United Kingdom.
Aside from the so many obvious issues about such a database (eg privacy, security, civil liberties, cost etc) there is one blindingly obvious question:
Does anyone seriously think that Nanny is capable of building a system that is large enough, and efficient enough, to store all of this data?
Politicians don't do IT, and are seen as dimwitted "patsies" by the IT firms and rip off "consultants" who sell Nanny second rate "toot" that is well past is sell by date.
I seriously doubt that, even if Nanny ever did manage to build this behemoth (at great expense to us), the "terrorists" that she believes lurk under our beds would be quite so dimwitted to post messages that identify exactly what they are going to do on Faecesbook.
