What, Me Worry?

Two wolves and a sheep walk into a democracy and sit down at a table. The first wolf says to the second wolf, “The analysis of large datasets, such as those produced by Geographic Information Systems (GIS), broad-spectrum signal collection, and multinode network communications, requires extensive processing to transform the data into usable information.”

The second wolf says, “Sure. Sometimes this information is to be used in military operations that have short implementation timeframes, and it also has applications in domestic intelligence. The MAGIC (Multidimensional Applications and Gigabit Internetwork Consortium) project is one resource that interacts with agencies such as the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), as well as contractors such as Hughes Electronics.”

The sheep looks first at one wolf, then the other. “Whatever,” he says, dismissively. “What are you guys having for dinner?”
