You know, I have absolutely no fear of this.
In fact I'd be as bold as to say that any IDIOT that allows their self to be recorded for any reason, in daily life conversations, bloody deserves to
be harnessed for all their worth.
I simply cannot fathom how someone can be aware of something and yet consider it an intrusion, when they have every option to opt out.
This is like you having a web cam, turned on, pointed at you, all the time, by your own choice, and then complaining that people are looking at
I tried to get the gist of How people were going to be duped into being recorded 24/7 from ignorancewars, but couldn't. So tried the Wired article.
And it just does not scare me.
You know, if you turn your electronic doodads off, you're not being recorded, right? Even if somehow the immediate future turns into some desperate

"OMG they're going to record everything you say and store it for all perpetuity!!!!!"
Well, if there were complete idiots out there with pockets full of money and had a look in their eye like "Take my money please, I'm ever so
slightly retarded!" -- I'd be writing apps to get it too.
Turn your things off. Go to a park. Remember though, in real life the bogey man wears a trenchcoat, and not a super duper secret microphone with a
sign on it saying "Im recording you, huurp!"
