Vigilancia para Todos

Segundo post do Times Online, com o novo sistema operacional da Apple, Leopard, sera possivel colocar em “screen saver”, com o freeware Surveillance Saver”, varias cameras de vigilancia ao redor do mundo. Assim, sentado na frente da sua tela, vc podera se sentir o verdadeiro big brother cibernetico, misturando curiosidade, monitoramento e voyerismo ao mesmo tempo…O meu Leopord deve chegar essa semana e nao deixarei de usar esse novo panopticum ;-))

“Britons are among the most watched people of all time, with new surveillance cameras seeming to appear every hour. But who watches all those images? Well, if you have a recent Apple computer and an inquiring mind, you can.

Surveillance Saver is a freeware screensaver module that trawls the internet feeds of hundreds (and soon to be thousands) of CCTV cameras worldwide and displays them on your monitor when its idle, using Apple’s Quartz Extreme imaging technology.

Whether using these feeds in this way is entirely legal or ethical is an interesting question, but as a temporary alternative from your home-brewed Times Online RSS feed screensaver it’s a pleasing diversion.”
