Of cats, cameras and concerns

December 16, 2007

Patrick Lambe is cute, I turn out to be a demented kitty on a fridge raid and Kim varies between pop-eyed and pathetic. Well serve her right for running our sites through the LOLinator. On a more serious note I still think Kim is over worried about surveillance cameras and misses the point. No of course they can’t (or at least they are very unlikely to) prevent a specific act of terrorism. However after the event they allow for extremely effective detection and the ability to trace networks and prevent other acts. OK if you live north of Sydney, or even in Sydney its over the top. However in London we have faced threats for many decades now, and have been lucky to escape with only a few major outrages. Having someone taking photographs of me as I walk around the streets really does not worry me – why should it?
