Yup, me trying to be clever and finding an alternative for ‘No Such Agency’ (NSA). I reckon that this is for them. I do not keep any IP for the hunting of terrorists and other people in similar lines of work. The idea hit me today, I cannot tell whether it was sparked by the Metadata directional assistant, something I wrote about a year ago. Or that is was a reference to a jump in time I made when I went back to the late 80’s and BASICODE. This last one needs an explanation. In the late 80’s someone came up with the concept of basic that would work anywhere (I think it was a way to plug MSX systems) and radio programs would tell you to record what was coming and you hear a fax like sound, but then via radio the entire script was transmitted and these people could play the cassette on their computer and load the program. I was a geeky nerd, I had a disk drive, not a cassette. But for some reason the thought came to me. What if we add an inaudible sound to the conversation, not digital, but analogue. Something added to the conversation that cannot be edited out, not directly anyway. So kidnappers, terrorists, and all kinds of people would be transmitting part of their location in the message. The first mobile tower for example. It is not a complete solution, it might need tweaking, but that is why I leave this idea to the NSA (GCHQ can go nuts on this too). Consider that smartphones are getting smarter, the makers are making ‘privacy’ a noble goal (whilst assisting criminals in their work), so what if the noise is not the digital path, but an added analogue part, possibly in the ultra law side of the spectrum (the high part sets of dogs and those with sensitive hearing), so I reckon that ultra low is the way to go. It would be nice if the signal towers respond more like radar (so a direction could be added) but that might be too much of a catch. An alternative is three antenna’s in a place like London or New York and like Decca they give their signal and it gets incorporated in the signal. And as 5G towers need overhaul and there would be a priority approach, it might make issues easier for the suited players (FBI and aligned players).
I wonder if this could work, suddenly we consider not what is digitally possible, but what analogue solutions could be added to the digital fold.
Yes, it might be a crazy idea, like one of my previous bosses stated, but he threw away the idea I created and what would become reality in Facebook, so that told me years later what he knew (basically nothing) and as I am about to prove that three times over, my mind started to be creative all by itself and this was the result. No idea if these people can make it work, or if they see anything in this, but at least I added options without charging them. And now it is time to imitate a sawmill (snore like the devil until 05:30)
Have a fun day.
