"According to a separate “User’s Guide for PRISM Skype Collection,” that service can be monitored for audio when one end of the call is a conventional telephone and for any combination of “audio, video, chat, and file transfers” when Skype users connect by computer alone. Google’s offerings include Gmail, voice and video chat, Google Drive files, photo libraries, and live surveillance of search terms.
Firsthand experience with these systems, and horror at their capabilities, is what drove a career intelligence officer to provide PowerPoint slides about PRISM and supporting materials to The Washington Post in order to expose what he believes to be a gross intrusion on privacy. “They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” the officer said."
U.S. intelligence has access to the servers of nine Internet companies as part of top-secret effort.

    sudo lsof -n | grep ssl | grep DEL

Pretty cool to see someone I admired as a kid (got my butt thoroughly whipped by all the ASM in Abrash's black book on graphics) working in AR now.

I’ve seen some speculation online that one of the pictures that accompanies the article, featuring Gordon Stoll wearing a headset, depicts a prototype of a Valve HMD. That might be more plausible if the headset didn’t clearly have the letters “NVIS” on it. It’s an off-the-shelf NVIS S...

Yeah, I've essentially decided to stop pursuing my PhD and just get an MS degree and see what I can do in industry. Too much exciting stuff to stay in school.
