During California Internet Outage
Saturday night, around 8:30 Pacific Standard Time, Time/Warner Cable was knocked out in 3/4 of the state of California according to Cox Cable in San Diego. Before I called Cox Cable to confirm there was an outage, I checked my Macintosh’s laptop’s wireless network to see who else in the area was affected. To my surprise almost everyone (except for a few possible satellite dish Network routers and a few cell phones) had no signal, but amongst the names of devices was to my shock, “NSA Surveillance Network #1492.”
My first thought was that it was annoying that the NSA were beaming a signal from somewhere treating everyone like they were a criminal and violating our 4th Amendment right to not be searched without a warrant, but then I asked myself where is the NSA broadcasting their signal? Was it coming from a satellite, a van, a broadcast tower, or maybe even a drone?
