An idea from codepope

Videoblogging - web cams with framestores and 802.11 links, along with bluetooth PDAs. Warwalk your way into an open 802.11 hotspot, and away go the latest images. It's straight out of David Brin's Earth, but hey, I don't mind the idea of The Transparent Society.

If there's to be no privacy, let it be individuals who control it, not the government...

[follow up to the original posting - codepope recommended me the Momus lyrics for the song "Age Of Information" which includes the lines:

Axiom 3 for transparency:

In the age of information the only way to hide facts
Is with interpretations
There is no way to stop the free exchange
Of idle speculations

I think these lyrics say what I'm trying to say in a very interesting way, and the whole song is well worth reading...]
