The Matrix Project.
Multistate Anti-TeRrorism Information EXchange (MATRIX)

Is not an adequate amount of having the patriot act I & II but lets get the matrix reloaded on the American people???

The Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange (MATRIX) pilot project leverages proven technology to assist criminal investigations by implementing factual data analysis from existing data sources and integrating disparate data from many types of Web-enabled storage systems. This technology helps to identify, develop, and analyze terrorist activity and other crimes for investigative leads. Information accessible includes criminal history records, driver's license data, vehicle registration records, and incarceration/corrections records, including digitized photographs, with significant amounts of public data records. This capability will save countless investigative hours and drastically improve the opportunity to successfully resolve investigations. The ultimate goal is to expand this capability to all states.

3. Web Enabled? I don't like the idea yet!
I have been an IT professional for 5 years now and I have to say I don't like the idea of web enabled criminal databases. The technology is still young and highly volatile. In my experience web enabled applications are highly vulnerable to attacks "hacks". Such apps are constantly being patched or updated to remove security holes. This could pose a huge issue in reference to the privacy and rights of those who may be suspected but not convicted. I have seen first hand hackers invade government sights that should have been completely secure.

I don't mean to rant, I just understand the dangers of such a system at this time. I am hopeful for the future and do feel such a system will work, we just need to develop the technology a little more.

:think:

4. It's going to get worse...
Because the powers that be would not be able to resist this kind of technology.
