That's very clever use of resources.

Kind of reminds of when Shia Labouef had hes 15 minutes of TDS fame with his camera stunt. Internet folks watched the jet contrails in the sky over the camera and using the internet calculated where they came from, triangulated, found the camera and smashed it. Then when crybaby Shia relocated it, they did it again. LOL

He called it performance art. Right after Trump was elected he mounted a camera and vowed to keep it streaming to a web site as long as Trump was president. He allowed certain people to rant anti-Trump stuff in front of it

That is a truly autistic level of focus and dedication to a particular topic. Perhaps this individual has a future in intelligence services or some other kind of data analysis.

weaponized autism. For those not familiar, here's a write-up which unfortunately comes from vice:

here's more impressive example of crowdsourced online intelligence autism from a few years ago:

Members of the online community take photos and screenshots from militant propaganda videos, and try to identify the precise locales based on geographic features and landmarks featured in the images. This /pol/ subcommunity known as /sg/, for Syria General, is working on both 4chan and the encrypted messaging app Telegram to coordinate its efforts. And, the community claims several success stories in recent months.

One collage image purports to show /sg/ responding to a call in the beginning of April by a Twitter user who calls himself Ivan Sidorenko. Sidorenko frequently shares videos and news from Syria. The users say they were able to narrow down the precise location, somewhere in southern Aleppo, which Sidorenko shared with the Russian Ministry of Defense's Twitter account. Another collage, from May 30, shows /sg/ identifying the location of a training camp belonging to Islamist group Jaysh al-Izza near the Syrian city of Hama. Again, Sidorenko shared the coordinates with the Russian defense agency's Twitter. (There is still no reason to imagine that Russia used the intel that was tweeted at it.)

interesting... brilliant in fact. I don't think Asia needs to actually steal our intellectual property... they tend to figure things out.
