Information Risk Forecast: Raining Nonsense

It is possible that Vishwa Bandhu Gupta, formerly an officer in India’s Internal Revenue Service, wants to explain information risks using some pretty odd metaphors. Possible. But not likely. Take a look at this video, and decide for yourself what he means when he says:

  • SIM card data can transfer itself to a mobile phone’s battery
  • You can recover conversations, after they happen, from the air
  • Rain might cause errors in the cloud

    Do Americans know about their own achievements? I’m sure they would be mighty proud!

    • @ Moinak, they should be proud! The air voice recorder will revolutionize spying. But I’m not happy with a 3% chance I’ll be arrested every time it rains. Methinks that human rights lawyers will be very busy during monsoon season ;)

    This guy should be writing sci-fi. He would make millions of dollars.

    I like the preamble:

    …In the following clip, he discusses how new technologies can enable curruption [sic]. He also discusses why Government should stay away from Cloud computing…

    Dude even has a reason why there are so many phone shops in US! And Google stores data in the sky where the clouds are seeded!

    To say that I am entertained is an understatement!

    Luckily we are warned that most Indians don’t pull facts out of their ass like this guy.
