DARPA: We Want to Be Like Google

June 30, 2009

Short honk: I think that the US government should emulate Google. I am not critical of DARPA (unit of the Department of Defense) and its new project. You can read about it in the CNet story “Reading Machine to Snoop on Web.” If you click this link, you can probably for a short period of time, access the statement of work for this little project. The first money chunk seems to be north of $20 million, a fraction of what it will cost to replicate some of these “as is” features of the Google. Enjoy.
