George Orwell is cringing in his grave.  The is beyond "Big Brother" watching us.  We are all now so very digitally connected everywhere.

Frightning.  If this makes you think, take a look at Juan Enriquez talk on TED - Your online life, Permanent as a Tattoo. http://www.ted.com/talks/juan_enriquez_how_to_think_about_digital_tattoos.html

Drone journalism takes off

Drone journalism takes off | MishMash | Scoop.it

As the media starts to deploy small toy-like drones to cover stories, what ethical and safety issues are arising?


Drone Journalism Lab founder Matt Waite said: "What are the property rights over your home? Am I trespassing by flying over your house? Beyond questions of personal privacy, another issue raised is the free speech issues raised by drones. For instance if there is a bad chemical spill... and police close the area down to keep people away... can I fly a drone over it and get a look? What if police close the airspace? Where is the line between the public's right to know about something versus the state's want for security?" (...)

 

"I understand people being uncomfortable with the faceless 'capital M' media getting flying robots with cameras. It's a similar concern as police getting the same: eyes in the skies, watching all the time." (...)

 

The assocation doesn't have a problem with the concept of responsible drone journalism and Ms Mactavish laughs off concerns over the potential for a greater invasion of privacy. "You've got to keep this in perspective - they won't be doing anything new. Google Earth can look right down into your backyard. Satellites have been doing this for 20 years. "They've arrived... Now it's all about safe and ethical deployment."

"Despite official assurances that the drone would only be used for:
search and rescue efforts the Sheriff has previously suggested that the drone could be used:


to hunt for marijuana farms, and “track suspects with guns,” referring to such operations as “proactive policing.”

 

"The device can also be fitted with thermal imaging devices that would allow police to: see inside buildings, as well as license plate readers and laser radar."


"An internal memo from the Sheriff’s Office dated July 20 also indicated that the department identified uses for the drone, including:
monitoring barricaded suspects, investigative and tactical surveillance, intelligence gathering, tracking suspicious persons and overseeing large crowd control disturbances."
