  • Introduces Sharon Sergeant, Newsweek
  • Something about how Dorian Nakamoto talks about “disk space” and “Moore’s Law” in the paper (and in real life?) so therefore he’s an old guy.  And by quote, the youngs don’t utter these words any more for they are free of those concerns in the digital nativity.
    • “The idea of conserving any kind of resources, and this is part of my formation, my long background in systems testing, that was a critical issue. But those are very very old-time concerns. To even mention disk space, things like that — disk space is cheap! And Moore’s Law is an old maxim that computing power will double. We’ve gone exponentially away from Moore’s law, but that was what it was all about in that interim period.” attributed to Sharon Sergeant.

    Summary: generic opinement
  • ;
  • Steve Mann; Existential Technology: Wearable Computing Is Not The Real Issue!; In Leonardo; pdf[1] pdf[2]; MIT Press: PDF[1], PDF[2]

    The author presents “Existential Technology” as a new category of in(ter)ventions and as a new theoretical framework for understanding privacy and identity. His thesis is twofold: (1) The unprotected individual has lost ground to invasive surveillance technologies and complex global organizations that undermine the humanistic property of the individual; (2) A way for the individual to be free and collegially assertive in such a world is to be “bound to freedom” by an articulably external force. To that end, the author explores empowerment via self-demotion. He has founded a federally incorporated company and appointed himself to a low enough position to be bound to freedom within that company. His performances and in(ter)ventions over the last 30 years have led him to an understanding of such concepts as individual self-corporatization and submissivity reciprocity for the creation of a balance of bureaucracy.

    This paper describes using wearable computing devices to perform “sousveillance” (inverse surveillance) as a counter to organizational surveillance. A variety of wearable computing devices generated different kinds of responses, and allowed for the collection of data in different situations. Visible sousveillance often evoked counter-performances by front-line surveillance workers. The juxtaposition of sousveillance with surveillance generates new kinds of information in a social surveillance situation.
