Florida Planning Son of Matrix
Wired News: Florida Planning Son of Matrix: "Florida law officials are contemplating a sequel to the controversial Matrix database that may be even more comprehensive than the original.

The Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange, or Matrix, contained billions of commercial and government records, and was intended to help police track down terrorists and kidnappers. But the system was shut down on April 15 when federal funds ran out."

"Law enforcement searched the database 1,866,202 times between July 2003 and April 2005, though less than 3 percent were related to terrorism investigations, according to Florida officials."
