Choicepoint: How the It Works with Government

In Age of Security, Firm Mines Wealth Of Personal Data (washingtonpost.com)
It began in 1997 as a company that sold credit data to the insurance industry. But over the next seven years, as it acquired dozens of other companies, Alpharetta, Ga.-based ChoicePoint Inc. became an all-purpose commercial source of personal information about Americans, with billions of details about their homes, cars, relatives, criminal records and other aspects of their lives.

Big Brother's little helper

Big Brother's little helper
ChoicePoint's mission is simple. The company amasses oodles of gigabytes of little pieces of just about every American's existence. Some of the information may be public and obvious, like property records or criminal histories. But one might mistakenly consider other pieces confidential or inconsequential, such as DNA samples turned over in a criminal investigation, or responses to a magazine survey asking where you last bought toothpaste, and what brand you chose.

School software helps parents keep tabs on teens

School software helps parents keep tabs on teens
Depending on how a school's system is configured, parents can potentially track all their children's unexcused absences and tardies. For each class their children are taking, they can see grades on all tests, quizzes and homework assignments, as well as the current overall grade and descriptions of upcoming homework assignments. They can request this information by e-mail, and receive discipline alerts if their children were chastised for disrupting class.

The Future of Surveillance

The Future of Surveillance
A lot has been written about the dangers of increased government surveillance, but we also need to be aware of the potential for more pedestrian forms of surveillance. A combination of forces -- the miniaturization of surveillance technologies, the falling price of digital storage, the increased power of computer programs to sort through all of this data -- means that surveillance abilities that used to be limited to governments are now, or soon will be, in the hands of everyone.
