Life under digit continues

Update 24/02/2013:
Surveillance keeps expanding. Drones are proliferating thanks to there cheap fabrications and the tentatives of regulation are regularly brought up.
I have been curating articles on the subjects of surveillance, tracking, spying, and drones on my Pearltrees for anyone interested to make its own opinion.
I am reading today a very well analysed essay by Ian Brown, Professor of Information Security and Privacy at the Oxford Internet Institute, on Drones surveillance and identity, titled ‘Privacy, surveillance and technologies impact on identity.’

Something to watch absolutely if you needed to understand what Drones are capable of producing: ‘Like a Swarm of Lethal Bugs: The Most Terrifying Drone Video Yet’

To read: ‘Why American Say No To Drones‘.

‘Are Drones Watching Your Town?’
