[liberationtech] NSA flag terms

Hi everyone (first post),

I am pretty sure most of that list has been around since the late 90s at
least - I remember many of them from "Jam Echelon Day" in 1999.

Incidentally, if anyone is interested in a little Jam Echelon Day history
you can read the hactivism e-mail list (which the JED idea emerged from,
and which I happened to start/moderate) archives at
http://archives.openflows.org/hacktivism/index.html and also a dissertation
someone wrote on early hacktivism
http://www.alexandrasamuel.com/dissertation/pdfs/Samuel-Hacktivism-entire.pdf.
I think it's pretty clearly the NSA derives more intelligence from graphing
connections/relationships than grepping for keywords, so I think JED was
more conceptual than practical (and quite disorganized, of course).

Thanks!
- Owen
