Ubiquitous Surveillance: Too Much Information
Here's an article about how a guy has been posting detailed information about the security preparations surrounding the Republican National Convention, and how it concerns people in the Department of Homeland Security.
This supports my growing feeling that Big Brother type scenarios will actually be harder, not easier, for the government to pull off, as the public will be at least as well armed to watch the government and it's officials as they are to watch the public.
I think it's important to ensure that laws aren't put into place to limit this as this kind of two-way watching is likely the only way to keep the government balanced while still protecting security.
