How to Process the Latest Horrible Information

If you're free Friday afternoon, I'll be participating in an event called "Ask Scott Meyer" (It's a good thing I was available.) on Twitter. It's hosted by GoComics, and starts at 1:30 PM Eastern time. #AskScottMeyer.

You can still enter for your final chance to win a signed copy of the new edition of Off to Be the Wizard (Magic 2.0). In addition to that book, the prize package will also include the Basic Instructions 2014 Box Calendar, and a signed copy of a book by a different author. This week, the bonus book is The Cancer of my Convictions, by Chris Lundgren. It reminded me of Generation of Swine by Hunter S. Thompson.

You can enter below by friending Off to Be the Wizard on Facebook, following me on Twitter, or by answering a simple question (see widget below for all three options.)

Sadly, the offer is only open to people in the United States. Shipping costs, what can I say? The contest closes on, April 25th at 12am. Thanks, and good luck!

The thing I don't like is that when they cast their nets that widely, they can't sort out the useful information.
They get so much information that they either have multitudes of trainees, or software, focused on a few "key" details or searchwords that the real bad guys inevitably learn to avoid, leaving them with unsuspecting crime show fans, heavy metal fans, and other people who might use the terms they're looking for without realising the trouble they're getting themselves into.
These people will be "made examples of" in the mistaken belief that this will at least intimidate people who have real harmful intentions.
In other words, Scott's right, the government's doing it badly.

Turns out the government knows everywhere I go, everything I eat, every one of my fiends' political opinions. I might just have to unfriend the NSA on Facebook...
