This is a pretty wicked video of Raytheon's Rapid Information Overlay Technology (RIOT) software.

It tracks people through social networking sites (SNS) and gives you a lot of amount of information.

In this video obtained by the Guardian, Raytheon's 'principal investigator' Brian Urch explains how the Rapid Information Overlay Technology (Riot) software uses photographs on social networks. These images sometimes contain latitude and longitude details – automatically embedded by smartphones within so-called 'exif header data'. Riot pulls out this information, analysing not only the photographs posted by individuals, but also the location where these images were taken

Nifty, eh? ;)

A lady I have a great deal of respect for handles the issue of personal privacy an interesting way.

Her advice? "Whenever asked, lie. Lie about everything." ;D
