Reverse Surveillance

Wired News: Surveillance Works Both Ways

At this year's Computers, Freedom and Privacy conference in Seattle, Steve Mann enlisted volunteers to film those who were filming them in local Seattle businesses. They got varied responses. I think this would be really useful in airports to monitor what the TSA does. But, I bet they would not be so happy about that.

"The totalitarian regime is the regime that would like to know everything about everyone but reveal nothing about itself"

"What I argue is that if I'm going to be held accountable for my actions that I should be allowed to record ... my actions," Mann said. "Especially if somebody else is keeping a record of my actions."
