Spaces of Terrorist Prevention

Subtopia have an interesting post on Architectural Clairvoyance and the Spaces of Terrorist Prevention:

'Behind the walls of a non-descript building somewhere in a quiet Washington suburb, multiple watch-teams sift their way through an endless barrage of data viz and intelligence. For 12 to 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, they analyze over “6,000 reports [that] come through every day from satellite, electronic and human intelligence sources,” in an attempt to trace nothing less than the unfathomable patterns of a fortuitous geometry of hidden connections, that could somehow help predict the next terrorist attack.'

The geometrics of surveillance and hidden connections... media and subversion...
