Information about the Big Brother Chip

(This page under construction--excuse the mess)

A note from your ftp site maintainer.

This directory is a repository of primary and secondary source documents on the executive branch's wiretap chips. If you have a copy of something I don't, please send it along.

A primary source is the words of people and organizations themselves: press releases, answers to questions, testimony. Secondary sources are people talking about primary sources; most of it here is journalism, but historical writings are always secondary sources as well. Secondary sources are ofter easier to read at the cost of distortion and bias. Primary sources are where the action is, it's where the facts are.

Both are included. You may want to start with some of the secondary documents for orientation and then move on the primary ones for detail.
