Defense Tech: DALEY DOES DARPA ONE BETTER
Just found this reference on Defense Tech from back in...uh...from...uh, well it seems Defense Tech doesn't put dates on its articles.

Anyway it talks about a plan that the Mayor of Chicago put together to connect 2000 existing video cameras (plus 250 new ones) into a system that can spot "suspicious activity", whatever that may be (the Defense Tech entry quotes heavily from the NY Times which indicates such activity might include wandering aimlessly in circles, or dropping of a package and leaving).

Though there are obvious privacy alarms that are no doubt going off, my question is: what would happen if this system was made publicly accessible? What could YOU do with feeds from 2000 cameras around the city? Would it at all stem the feeling of having the government watch over our shoulders?
