I was trying to do some research on the Information Awareness Office (IAO) and the Total Information Awareness (TIA) project that they had been conducting, which became the Terrorist Information Awareness, and recently, just MATRIX (it has a better name, so it’s good, right?). Anyways, what I found was that IOA website is completely gone. Poof! But newly created is an Information Exploitation Office (IXO). Sadly, the IXO logo does not feature fashionably illuminati-esque eye-beams.
Anyways, it doesn’t look like anyone else has picked up on this, and it’s probably a timely subject considering the elections are drawing close.
