Face The Facts On Surveillance
from the they're-everywhere dept
Yet another person has noticed that there are now surveillance cameras absolutely everywhere. The fact is, most people don’t realize the number of security cameras that are out there. This guy wonders if there are devices that can disable the cameras. Even though he’s not planning on doing anything illegal, he just wants his privacy back. His compromise solution is that we need to get some control back over the cameras. He suggests that there should be a public directory of where the various cameras are and who runs them – as well as access to the records. This goes back to the increasingly popular concept of “watching the watchers”. Unfortunately, apathy and ignorance make this unlikely to happen.
