    Greetings. I am Janus.
    I am better known as brolly.
    I thought the name janus was suiting seeing as how recently i've adopted the name goldeneye. brolly+goldeneye=janus; the two faced roman god. Anyways, I like science- it is the substitute for Catholicism. (j/k) For those who don't know, I am a big fan of the matrix films, video games, skateboarding, conspiracy, politics, aliens (no relation to conspiracy in my mind), ghosts (also no relation to conspiracy in my mind), spys, computers, reading, and writing. I hope I will enjoy my stay here, though I no doubt that I shouldn't. :wink:

    JANUS-

    Welcome, Janus! Though Echelon 3 may search this site without our permission, most of us (I think :?) are not up to any conspiracies .

    Mr U
    I'm more afraid of the Patriot Act then Echelon 3, Mister U. I remember you talking before about Echelon... something to do with "the all seeing eye." What is it exactally? And what is with the number 3 behind it?

    JANUS;nobilis accido magnus-

    ::EDIT::
    I did a little research on Echelon technology, but i'd still like to know what the #3 is there for.
    The limits of a large system such as ECHELON are defined by its very size. Though the system intercepts 3 billion communications daily, clients must know which intercepted communications to monitor before they can realize an intelligence advantage. For example, in the months prior to the September 11 attacks on the United States, signal intelligence produced by ECHELON developed considerable "chatter", or snippets of dialogue, that suggested some sort of attack was imminent. Analysts were unable to pin down the details of the attack, though, because operatives planning the attack relied largely on non-electronic communications. Even overt signals, such as a dramatic increase in futures trading related to companies that were to be damaged in the attack, failed to alert analysts, apparently because they did not know where within the daily deluge of electronic messages to look, much less how to connect the dots pointing to a specific attack.

    Prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks and the legislation which followed it, US intelligence agencies were generally prohibited from spying on people inside the US and some foreign intelligence services faced similar restrictions within their own countries. There are allegations, however, that ECHELON and the UKUSA alliance were used to circumvent these restrictions by, for example, having the UK facilities spy on people inside the US and the US facilites spy on people in the UK, with the agencies exchanging data (perhaps even automatically through the ECHELON system without human intervention).
    That is pretty scary...

    Echelon 3 is the version number, every number is a more advanced fuction, being able to use more powerful algorithms to more intelligently search emails, et cetera for content deemed by it's users as being 'interesting'.

    So, i'm guessing it is dish somewhere. Or is it a space station? I know it said there were ground stations, and it gave a list of where they were, but I wasn't sure. How many countries have echelon besides the USA and the UK?
