Again, people just don’t seem to see the consequences if this tech is ‘mis-used’. What to do then? Who can you hold accountable? Who can you talk to about a ‘feasibility study’ for prosecution? Without everyone that you don’t want to know, knowing about it.
Quoted from the article:
“Imagine if Google or Facebook decided to install their own CCTV cameras everywhere, gathering data about our movements, recording our lives and joining up every camera in the land in one giant control room. It’s Orwellian surveillance with fluffier branding. And this isn’t just video surveillance – Glass uses audio recording too. For added impact, if you’re not content with Google analysing the data, the person can share it to social media as they see fit too.
Yet that is the reality of Google Glass. Everything you see, Google sees. You don’t own the data, you don’t control the data and you definitely don’t know what happens to the data. Put another way – what would you say if instead of it being Google Glass, it was Government Glass? A revolutionary way of improving public services, some may say. Call me a cynic, but I don’t think it’d have much success.”
Words have meaning and actions have consequences.
