This paper seeks to connect weak signals with the ability to analyze the human environment afforded by information technology. Two fields in which the application of weak signals is followed with particular interest are military and industrial espionage. Those involved in the war of terrorism are keen to utilize any opportunity to anticipate terrorist actions. In this war, maintaining privacy is not a major concern.
