    paranoid

    probably.
    now I'm noticing it everywhere I look.

    "Package: prism2-usb-firmware-installer" in everything debian

    "http://www.prism2.org/
    Scientists and engineers – using advanced computer-based software – can now make astonishingly realistic and accurate simulations virtually"

    "Prism (chipset)Prism wireless networking solutions are a family of Conexant chpsets used for Wireless LANs
    802.11 b/g products Prism54"

    They couldn't get all the information from phonelines and had to go to ISPs...kind of makes sense they'd want to delve deeper & get their software on every machine and want academics using it too. Everything uses wireless now

    I would laugh just so very hard if it ended up that the Amish destroyed the world and the NSA had been busy watching us play Black Ops 2 in our pants.
    I feel violated.

    Edit: not that I sit around all day playing Black Ops 2 in my pants but...Hypothetical >.>

    Re: paranoid

    If you are worried
    step #1 search for named package, make sure it wasn't installed
    step #2 view source code, look for anything suspicious (if you don't understand it make this step #3 and insert learn programming language _name_ here)

    Re: paranoid

    Everybody has a RAS, but not everybody knows about it. Reticular Activating System--it allows us to recognize patterns. If you see the reference to "Prism" in the news, then you tend to see it everywhere you look.

    Even if they are looking at you.

    And they are.

    It's also how Horoscopes work. "You will see many things through a prism today."
