MIT’s Immersion program

This is neat.  TechCrunch posted a link to the Immersion program developed by MIT.  According to TechCrunch, it is a “cool visualization program to map how the National Security Agency can understand your relationships based on who you contact via email and how often. While we still don’t know whether the NSA is collecting the content of phone calls and Internet activity, we know from court documents and Senate testimony that the government broadly mines so-called “meta-data” about whom users interact with.”
