I think that it is kinda cool how the little guys, us, are using high technology that was once only controlled by the government to do some spying of our own. It would be great to have a group of normal people, who could invest in one of these private satellites like buying stock, and have unlimited use of them unhampered by any government. Of course, Im sure the Feds would figure out a way to tax space so that this would be way too expensive to do.
