Re: <nettime> Pascal Zachary: Rules for the Digital Panopticon (IEEE)

The degree of surveillance will simply escalate along with
the technology -- what's unjust is the access to the
information: the proverbial level-playing-field was the one
big "underlying" promise of the Internet... We all should be
able to learn where the rogue-cops, corrupt CEOs, gangsters,
embedded politicos live, what they buy, how much they're
paid and by-whom, etc. Years ago I remember a story about a
small town in France(?) that mounted accessible-web-cams in
most public areas (including police stations) so that any
citizen at any time could monitor and report on
transgressions to the common-good, with the result that
police were hardly needed as there was little crime and the
community felt much safer/responsible. Is Obama Bin Laden
still playing cards?
