Factoid of the day: Palantir

Palantir is a computer program that analyzes information.

Palantir Intelligence is a complete, proven solution that is used throughout the intelligence community to efficiently, effectively, and securely exploit and analyze data, leading to more informed operational planning and strategic decision-making.
This is a commercial app. But this is the back story on the big brother elites that have all your personal information as discussed in the previous webcast.

At this point, listen to previous podcast link, 
on how it allows them to run your life on many levels.

Tolkien would be aghast: One theme of LOTR is the danger of experts running your life (read Scouring of the Shire, which was left out of the movie).

however, like all tools it is valuable to analyze threats to the public.

Strategypage discusses how troops prefer to use the  commercial app Palantir over the government app when they analyze intelligence. This annoys the bureaucrats, the main sin in todays US Military.
