First there was PRISM the network that's collecting real-time data on American's everywhere and now The Guardian has turned up "Boundless Informant".
Boundless Informant is indexing surveillance and espionage metadata from the ENTIRE WORLD. Read

It appears from news reports that Boundless Informant is much larger in scope than the Verizon portion. While technical details are sketchy, it is said that they have deep backgrounds on over 200 million U.S citizens -- in addition to detailed reports on millions of foreign nationals.
This and they are finishing two mega data centers.

What is this costing? It must be staggering - and what is the net gain?

It's not called PRISM internally; that's just the name of the computer system that makes it work.
It's called the Collection of Intelligence Pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or "Section 702" for short.
Section 702 doesn't operate outside the oversight of Congress and the courts. It doesn't collect information without court approval or without informing service providers.
