Space TV is my favorite nerd channel where I watch a lot of my Star Trek.

Separated at Birth?

I found this old shot of me in University where I look a lot like Orwell. Strange!
Take a look at this essay about Big Brother versus Little Brother from security guru Bruce Schneier.

Big Brother isn’t what he used to be. George Orwell extrapolated his totalitarian state from the 1940s. Today’s information society looks nothing like Orwell’s world, and watching and intimidating a population today isn’t anything like what Winston Smith experienced.

1984’s police state was centralized; today’s is decentralized. Your phone company knows who you talk to, your credit card company knows where you shop and NetFlix knows what you watch. Your ISP can read your email, your cell phone can track your movements and your supermarket can monitor your purchasing patterns. There’s no single government entity bringing this together, but there doesn’t have to be. As Neal Stephenson said, the threat is no longer Big Brother, but instead thousands of Little Brothers.

The fear isn’t an Orwellian government deliberately creating the ultimate totalitarian state… It’s that we’re doing it ourselves, as a natural byproduct of the information society.

Rest of essay here.

Canadian Press Video

And here is the Canadian Press video of me getting a two part prosthetic popped in. There is enough room in there for the little camera that Omnivision sent us.

Not far off now!

Toronto filmmaker plans to use prosthetic eye camera for documentary

Big Brother is watching — and so is Little Brother.
Toronto filmmaker Rob Spence says he is getting a tiny video camera put inside a prosthetic eye to allow him to secretly film his subjects.

Spence says his goal is twofold: to raise awareness of constant surveillance in society and to get people talking unself-consciously.
