Tomi T Ahonen

Hi Alan

Good posting and great blog by David. I totally agree, and I think its a good example of how new technology will not be inherently good or inherently bad, but rather how it will be used.

For example the UK is one of - if not the world's most - densely populated country with surveillance cameras. And then when the abilities came for license plate recognition from surveillance cameras, it would allow such innovations, as London being able to track all licence plates of cars entering the Congestion Charge zone, and then billing drivers a fee who hadn't paid the congestion charge (some would argue this is a good thing).

Now the same technology is used to harass Tesco customers.. Shame on Tesco, shame!

Incidentially the current Economist has a story about profiling and data mining by government, and the BBC has a special about it relating to air travel etc. This kind of automated "big brother" behaviour is clearly spreading with the advances in technology. I'm really concerned with all the blogs and writing and comments and emails that some day some dumb computer puts some silly profile together with my travel patterns and suddenly I am on some watch list unable to travel etc...

Gotta be careful, digital footprints and all, eh..

Tomi :-)
