wrong model -
I WANT the feds to record all my traffic- then i can stop doing backup - i bet if they
outsource the storage beusiness properly, they can get a better deal than me
oh, but i want to prove that the y have strong partitioning of data by insisting on
occasional (random) retrievals to check they have my data right.
of course, they can bill me for that, but i can ask GCHQ, MOSSAD, NSA, , etc etc
and see who does the cheapest service
i dont see why intelligence agencies shouldnt be subject to free market forces just like
the rest of us.
