Routinizing the Discovery of Secrets: Computers as Informants.
Marx, Gary T.; Reichman, Nancy
American Behavioral Scientist, v27 n4 p423-52 Mar-Apr 1984
Computers make possible a variety of investigative and enforcement techniques. However, the technology of systematic data searching is subject to at least six sources of error, e.g., incorrectly entered data, none of which can be completely eliminated. Thus, a thought police as envisioned by Orwell remains a technological fiction. (RM)
