Default Its's a RIOT: tracking online

The Guardian's headline 'Software that tracks people on social media created by defence firm'. Exclusive: Raytheon's Riot program mines social network data like a 'Google for spies', drawing ire from civil rights groups.

Link to article: nd the short four minute Raytheon video, from November 2010:

What is RIOT?
Rapid Information Overlay Technology
Jared Adams, a spokesman for Raytheon's:
Riot is a big data analytics system design we are working on with industry, national labs and commercial partners to help turn massive amounts of data into useable information to help meet our nation's rapidly changing security needs.
Just why The Guardian thinks this is an exclusive is beyond me. There is nothing new or startling here.
