Yet another good one from the BBC:
Google’s plans to launch a mapping tool in the UK could be referred to the Information Commissioner.
Street View matches photos of locations to maps, including passers-by who were captured as the photograph was taken.
Privacy International, a UK rights group, believes the technology breaks data protection laws.
Okay, hmm, the UK… Wasn’t that the country with CCTV cameras at every corner? Yeah, I guess that’s it. Maybe the UK government wants to start its own “street view” service. Live, 24/7 and even more invasive than Google Street View. Can I throw in a name for it? How about “terrorist prohibition view” or short “TPV, brought to you by your government”.
Just as a reminder, here’s the radio ad of the Counter-Terrorism advertising campaign:[audio:http://holgr.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/ct.mp3]
Great job guys. Spread the FUD.
