Move over George Orwell – the Defense Advanced Research (DARPA) announced recently its new “deep web” search program for police and law enforcement called: “Memex” which will be able to search the far corners of internet content that is unattainable by modern, mainstream search engines, offering DARPA “technological superiority in the area of content indexing and Web search on the Internet.”
