***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Story in GCN today estimates that AT&Ts database supplied to NSA was 312 terrabytes plus, when managed by ATT's Daytona software that managements its call detail record dbase.

Read the story at: http://www.gcn.com/print/25_13/40827-1.html I am waiting for the first paper that does clustering and centrality on the American telephone system.
