FEDS: The FBI is preparing to launch a massive intelligence gathering campaign, in order to identify suspected terrorists.
ALEX: Terrorists? How are you going to do that?
FEDS: We have this nifty thing called “Carnivore” that allows us to monitor internet messages as they go through internet servers. We’d like you all to integrate it into your Nifty Doorways Server, to make our job easier.
ALEX: And why would we want to do this?
FEDS: Officially, because you’re law-abiding citizens who want to make the Internet safe for children. Unofficially, because you can use it to collect marketing data about your customers, and we don’t have a problem with that.
ALEX: I’ll get my manager.
