They have ethnicity programs to detect what part of the world you come from ,there digital markers to determine
dialects , to control resources you need to control the people in the world ,you will need to track down anyone who can gate the governments systems, hence the bright new digital age of spying on everybody .

In short there are to many people on the planet chasing to few resources ,and industrial spying is paramount to countries like America and Britain China ect ect !
With china moving into Africa and buying up materials they need to know what where and how much !

This just seems like the next stage of police state surveilence in the US, on a much bigger Orwellian scale than what we've seen lately. Snowdens revelations are only the beginning.

Matt, why would the DEFENSE Department spend money just to make things more convenient for you?

However, if these people are sold on storing everything in "the cloud" for "their use" not fully realizing that they will also be available for law enforcement and the military to search.

If stored locally without outside access AND if the individual can edit out remarks that can be potentially damaging should they be made public, then and only then will it be safe.

Cloud storage though? No way. The military and law enforcement already have rights to monitor, log, and store public speech and writings that can be used against them in the future, particularily those streaming one way or another over the Internet.

This article title is misleading; compare to the Wired article title. The research project is *not* trying to collect others' conversations, but to let you transcribe and recall *your own* conversations, should *you* choose to record them. Just as paper let us record words and computers let us search them, now we can record and serach speech. While technology enables and empowers, ultimately *we* must decide, individually and collectively, what language we choose to record and store. Spoken language and oral history are an important part of our cultural record we can now preserve and access, when *we* choose to do so.

These guys have been doing this for decades. Duh! Is anyone home? April 19th, 1775 is a good place to start. What say you?

DARPA - Russia's favorite American Boogey-Man. Russia is more interested in DARPA than the US. Boo!
