Internet Eyes, Fighting Crime from Home

Friday, October 08, 2010

Transcript

Internet Eyes, which launched this week, enables Britons to fight crime for cash rewards by watching live streamed CCTV footage from shops and businesses on their own computers. While civil libertarians see this as further evidence of Britain's 'Big Brother' surveillance society, founder Tony Morgan says Internet Eyes is a kind of citizens' brigade.

Your neighbors watch you as you shop, have a pint of beer or whatever. Nobody's business but yours. Not in "Great Big Brother Briton".
So your meeting a friend to listen to her tale of woe and you are supposed to be at work .... your neighbor sees you via internet spying and blackmails you threatening to tell your boss.
These are minor things and of course we know it is much more insidious.

More than creepy. It's bad enough that there are official watchers all over Britain who see citizens as they go about their daily business - but the idea that ordinary citizens have a right to see who is shopping at some store or another is more than Orwellian. The possibilities for blackmail and worse are extraordinary since, I assume, the watchers see everybody who is in the store not just the crooks.
