Artur Coelho's insight:

internet of things gone wild. porque com sensores espalhados por todo o lado nem são precisas câmaras para registar o que fazemos. basta análise aos padrões registados pelos sensores para registar o que fazemos (é por isso que a questão do metadados vs constitucionalidade não é uma questão menor). agora combinem isso com neoliberalismo alastrante e suspeito que esta distopia se poderá tornar real. por exemplo, o controlador do carro informar-nos que, se não pagarmos uma simbólica taxa, envia à seguradora e às autoridades a informação que excedemos o limite de velocidade numa estrada... mas tudo com um sorriso, porque a IoT é coisa boa.

Why Lois Lane Told The World That Clark Kent Is Superman | Research_topic | Scoop.it
It’s long been unclear who is the worse reporter: Clark Kent, who lies to his readers daily by not mentioning that he’s the guy he is always writing about, or Lois Lane, whose ability to recognize Kent’s true identity is kryptonited by a pair of glasses.
