    Send Barbie and Ken and the .XXX Groupies Here

    Freescale Technology Forum
    June 20-23, 2005
    Orlando, FL

    This inaugural event is a combination of previous events from Freescale Semiconductor and key alliances—such as the Smart Networks Developer Forum and the Embedded Connectivity Summit—but promises to be much more than the sum of its parts.

    Pay no attention to what Verisign, IBM and Microsoft
    are planning for the .NET Mesh Registry Evolution.
    They will be marketing it via ICANN and the ISOC.
    They are funding ISI and the insiders to develop it.

    The U.S. Government is funding their own insiders.

    The architecture and the code is the same.
    Mated-pair WRT-54Gs
    8 .NET Names per Pair
    Duplicated Pairs Around the .EARTH
    The .NET Engine Package is an add-on

    Don't ask ICANN about the .EARTH TLD

    What is Third Echelon?
    Third Echelon is a subagency of the NSA, an elite team of strategists, hackers, and field operatives who collect intelligence to anticipate and respond to crises of information warfare.

    What is a Splinter Cell?
    When intelligence deemed critical to national security cannot be obtained by traditional means, Third Echelon is granted clearance to conduct physical operations. Its existence denied by the U.S. government, Third Echelon deploys units known as Splinter Cells: elite intelligence-gathering forces consisting of a lone field operative supported by a remote team. Like a sliver of glass, a Splinter Cell is small, sharp, and nearly invisible.

    What is Third Echelon’s mission?
    For the past five decades, the NSA has engaged in the passive collection of moving data, intercepting communications en route. But as communications become digital and sophisticated encryption becomes ubiquitous, passive collection is no longer sufficient. The NSA launches a top-secret initiative, Third Echelon, a return to classical methods of espionage powered by the latest technology for the aggressive collection of stored data. No longer filtering the world through satellites and antennas, Third Echelon agents physically infiltrate dangerous and sensitive enemy locations to collect the required intelligence by whatever means necessary.

    Third Echelon agents’ prime directives are as follows:
    - To aggressively collect intelligence vital to U.S. security.
    - To protect critical U.S. information systems.
    - To keep all operations invisible to the public eye.
    - To work outside the boundaries of international treaties, but know that the U.S. will neither acknowledge nor support their operations.
