I've been a longtime reader of much of your work but I'm particularly interested in some of the material you wrote about in The Transparent Society. How have the ideas from that book played into Existence? What's your opinion of deliberate data pollution - lying - by individuals in order to deflect overzealous data miners?

What group of conspiracists worry you the most? Political, economic, military, scientific, insert group here?

I was thinking of the question more in terms of group/organizational structures than particular political groups. For example, current U.S. politics seems to be in a structural bind where neither Republicans nor Democrats can actually govern because the other group is willing to block or filibuster everything that the opposition proposes. But is this blocking of compromise actually an indication of conspiracy?
