Little Brother Could Be Watching You, Too
from the everybody's-spying dept
USA Today is picking up on the questions I raised last week about what happens in a world where everyone has a camera everywhere. It certainly is changing the way people view privacy. While someone actually accused me of being a “neo-luddite” (definitely a first!) for my comments last week, I think the issue is an interesting one to discuss. I find it amusing that everyone thinks that just because I raise the issue, I must think it’s “bad”. I’m just wondering what the implications are, in a world where we all have cameras recording everything everywhere we go – redefining what’s private and what’s public. While some cases are clearcut, not everything is. How would you feel if your neighbor’s “security camera” was recording things happening on your private property?
