About 15% of email is ever read by a human, and less still is so written. If Nigella has her way that’ll only go down.

The Web, too, and IM chatter; p2p traffic, torrents, whatever, as long as it’s machine-to-machine nonsense. Who cares if a few cable users grumble about upload speed? Because she’s protecting them, all of them. She’ll hide their friends-only entries and their little crimes, bury them in the hiss, make the server farms in McLean whine and tremble with the effort of digging through her digital static.

She’s doing her part: noising up Echelon.
