  1. Nice find Mark. I wonder what Steve Mann has to say on this.

  2. Is Glass (Digital Eye Glass) a form of surveillance or sousveillance?  Surveillance means "overwatching", e.g. police watching a suspect.  It doesn't seem that Glass is for surveillance.  Its either sousveillance or just veillance (unless there's something I'm missing here, e.g. maybe Google's working with the Police to  use Glass as a way of spying on people???).

  3. Whats at stake here is the juxtaposition. Anonymity, secrecy and the "other" filtered through the embodied corporate. Possible or a clever pun play? I think there is room to explore Project Glass as an emergent form of #veillance  - historically rendering what we know of state secrecy to act for the public or in some cases despite what the public have in their interests understood to be that of #privacy. Project Glass as mobile CCTV as the 'truer' data collective ? I'm not the only one thinking that it's perfectly feasible, possible, likely....perhaps. Thats what I hope this conference will answer.

  4. [ It doesn't seem that Glass is for surveillance. ] Nor does it 'seem' that it is for sousveillance either. What is missing here is Google's statements as to how it protects the rights and cultural dispositions of those it renders captured as subjects in Googles data collection. What better way to peer into places unmapped, unchartered, still dark and under-exposed? What else are search engines for? Person-view maps are a viable monetisation point and social event perspectives as 6 second video bursts are the #tweetveillant  future.
