"In 2001 Tampa put up 36 facial recognition cameras in Ybor "

Have they managed to camera trap any gassy rhinoceroses?

In 2001 Tampa put up 36 facial recognition cameras in Ybor The ST Pete Times article dated July 19 2001 titled Click. BEEP, face captured is quite a read. I remember hearing a tec saying, when all this was happening, That the crowd who was wearing mostly Groucho Marx masks didn't matter much because it works by analyzing 80 points between the nose, cheekbones and eyes so there were several points still available for the technology to do its job. FYI They removed the software but still have the cameras.

BT did you plagiarize that from Ryan Lochte?

Having the time of my life in Brazil is on my bucket list. Thankfully, wearing a mask while doing so is on my list too. True story.

Phew! Close one.

Its so much worst then any of you know. ALL of your pictures on Facebook and other sites are stored. ANYONE with facial recondition software can purchase access to your pictures. You can be in Brazil have the wild time of your life and someone with a cell phone can take your face picture and within minutes know who you are where you live and everything you have posted on Facebook or the internet.

If that does not scare you, GPS does track you and everywhere you go. both your navigation systems and the GPS unit that is now part of the car itself that Obama has required by law to be in all cars. The purpose is to be used by goverment in case of an accident or DUI to prove in court who is at fault. But this is part of all new cars.

The voice activated technology that is now available sends everything you do in your house and everything you say in your house to the cloud for storage and future use by????

Government on all levels have always been corrupt Andy nothing will ever change that. For as long as I can remember everyone has always been worried about authoritarean rule and it hasn't come into the fruition and level that everyon cries about (and strangely it's only authoritarean if your guy/party isn't in control). The greatest thing about the USA is the Constitution and the checks and balances that it creates. I make no excuses, but if I am going to live my life worried about everything about me, what I do, who I am with being exposed then I have to question myself. What's that old saying (at least I think it is, " Don't do anything that you wouldnt feel comfortable with your mother seeing about you on the cover of The NY Times." I don't want to see her seeing I murdered someone, but if I was exposed as a swinger or that I watched porn; that wouldn't be the end of the world for her or I. My two cents.

Remember when people used to worry about the government keeping track of them? And now we are discussing whether we would rather go back to the old ways of gas station maps. We have somehow drifted into a situation where every aspect of our lives can now be recorded for commercial purposes and that information is considered a commodity. That is property, just not ours. The government of course has the right to access that information at any time, and can now, effectively, replay ur lives at will. In fact, as Snowden showed us, they don't even need to ask a judge.

When someone suggests we shouldn't worry about it I just shake my head. So we trust the government now? Intrinsically? Completely? We have no fear of government corruption? Of the rise of an authoritarian political party? Or the co-option of one of our stalwart old political parties by an authoritarian regime? We think our society is so sexually open, acceptant of kinks and gender roles, so racially and religiously harmonious tat we have nothing to fear about our interests/habits/movements/associations being exposed to the world either unintentionally or, much worse by design in a concerted effort to destroy us? If we don't think we're important enough to worry about, what about the people who seek to be our leaders? To set our policies? To protect or usurp whatever freedoms we have left?

Like this isn't the biggest issue of our times?
