Even if you could possibly have every bit of human knowledge at your fingertips, we don't yet have the computing power to do much useful with it.

Most of us really don't even have the computing power to analyze vast amounts of Internet traffic in real time, as certain government agencies do.

But as you said, to pull useful information out of the network, you really don't need to know everything, and knowing too much gets in the way.

I'm looking forward to see what else you have to say, as I've been thinking about how to adapt data mining techniques to the problem of blog spam prevention. From the view of one weblog, only limited information is available, but by making more effective use of more information than others use, I've made a pretty good dent in the blog spam problem. And since I have to analyze in real time, I can't use a lot of information anyway.

Jeff blogged...
"What matters is the entrance point into the network. For example, starting with a known bad guy or a communication from an Al Qaeda safe house? Observing the network from such a vantage point is useful."

Right on, Jeff! We are in total agreement.

I wrote the original of this white paper in 2002 when I also was asked "how do you predict this from patterns?"
