Catching Terrorists 2.0
sent in an idea to catch evil-doers. I’ll wrap it up:
- Create an AdWords campaign targeting keyphrases like “build a bomb"*, “how to become a Taliban”, “overtake USA” or “escape Guantanamo”
- When someone clicks on the ad in Google search results or on AdSense ads integrated in websites, you’ll track the time + IP address of the user
- With that list in hand, you have some good starting point data. If you’re a government, you can now e.g. subpoeana ISPs
If you on the other hand want to become a terrorist – according to a popular get-things-done-network, “2 out of 2 people (100%) think this is worth doing” – the best advice is probably not to click on ads.
