Big Brother Awards France - Qui surveillera les surveillants ? Eye Am a Camera: Surveillance and Sousveillance in the Glassage The following is a guest post by Professor Steve Mann. Read Mann’s complete bio at the end of this article for more information. Digital eye glasses like Google’s Project Glass, and my earlier Digital Eye Glass, will transform society because they introduce a two-sided surveillance and sousveillance. Not only will authorities and shops be watching us and recording our comings and goings (surveillance as we know it today), but we will also be watching and recording them (sousveillance) through small wearable computers like Digital Eye Glass. Through the Glass Society has entered the era of augmented and augmediated reality. Steve Mann Cell phone view, augmediated reality on iPhone Soon, the smartphone will become eyeglass-based so that these overlays can augment and mediate our everyday lives.

EPIC - Electronic Privacy Information Center 5 Funny Ways to Protest the NSA - Part 2 Since discussing “5 Funny Ways to Contest Corporate Personhood” earlier this year, a new frightening controversy has come to our attention: the NSA. The secretive program may do its best to fly under the radar while collecting – en masse – personal information from foreigners and U.S. citizens alike, but that hasn’t stopped concerned individuals from finding creative ways to voice their disapproval for this overdone approach to a surveillance state. Here are five funny ways NSA dissenters have found to express themselves: 1. Adopting a Highway Restore the Fourth Utah, a local group opposed to the warrantless mass collection of data, found an inventive way of obtaining lawful proximity to the NSA: they adopted the highway adjacent to an NSA building. Like good adoptive parents, the group will be responsible for regularly cleaning litter from the highway… and they plan on holding signs opposing the NSA while doing so. 2. 3.

Sousveillance Turns the Tables on the Surveillance State Narrative ClipThe Narrative Clip is a digital camera about the size of a postage stamp that clips to one’s breast pocket or shirt collar and takes a photo every thirty seconds of whatever one’s seeing. The photos are uploaded to the cloud and can be accessed on demand with a smartphone app, making it easy to look up any moment in one’s life. When the project to mass-produce these cameras first hit Kickstarter, I knew I had to have one, and with any luck mine will be arriving in a couple of weeks. The prospect of having a complete photographic record of my life is compelling for many reasons. Sousveillance is the recording of an activity by a participant in that activity, and it can be thought of as the inverse of surveillance. Being monitored in everyday life has become inescapable. Ideally, perhaps, we would all be left alone to live private lives under no one’s gaze. Luckily, it increasingly looks like the sousveillance ship has also already sailed.

Reprenez le contrôle de vos données ! The Day We Fight Back: Activism Sweeps the Internet with Global Action Against Mass Surveillance This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form. AARON MATÉ: Next year will mark a decade since the Bush administration’s warrantless spying first came to light. The news the White House authorized surveillance on Americans without court approval shattered the secrecy around the National Security Agency. AMY GOODMAN: It’s called "The Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance." Organizers announced the action on the eve of the death anniversary of the Internet open-access activist Aaron Swartz. AARON SWARTZ: Wikipedia went black. DECLAN McCULLAGH: This is a historic week in Internet politics, maybe American politics. PETER ECKERSLEY: The thing that we heard from people in Washington, D.C., from staffers on Capitol Hill, was they received more emails and more phone calls on SOPA blackout day than they’d ever received about anything. AMY GOODMAN: We go now to San Francisco, where we’re joined by Rainey Reitman. Rainey, welcome to Democracy Now! And that’s what we’re doing.

Sousveillance Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Cette webcam sans fil est comparable à la boîte noire d'un avion, enregistrant en continu ce que vit celui qui la porte. La sousveillance, également appelée surveillance inverse, est un terme proposé par le Canadien Steve Mann pour décrire l'enregistrement d'une activité du point de vue d'une personne qui y est impliquée[1], souvent réalisée par un appareil enregistreur portable[2]. Surveillance inverse est un terme plus limitatif que sousveillance, plaçant l'accent sur une « vigilance par la base » ayant vocation à « surveiller la surveillance » en analysant et en surveillant les systèmes de surveillance eux-mêmes et les autorités qui les contrôlent. Jamais Cascio (en) fait référence au concept de sousveillance en parlant de « panoptique inversé » (en hommage à Jeremy Bentham et à Michel Foucault). « Track the money »[modifier | modifier le code] « Assiduité politique »[modifier | modifier le code] Exemple de Neda[modifier | modifier le code]

Présentation - Les renseignements généreux Police Looking at Your Real-Time Web Browsing, Text Messages, Private Pics — Over 1.1 Million “Reported” Requests WASHINGTON, DC — Police can gain access to your location, your text messages, your conversations, your real-time web browsing activity, and much more. They contacted cellphone carriers over 1.1 million times last year in order to do so, according to a report released by Edward Markey, a senator. They often get the data without a warrant depending on the carrier. It turns out that law enforcement has had access to your private data — financial records, political beliefs, info on friends and relatives, credit score, google searches, etc. — for almost a decade. The latest report from the senator barely scratches the surface. For example, AT&T gives them your complete texts and voicemails without a warrant. This news is making the rounds in mainstream media. The 1.1 million figure is an egregious underestimation, since not all of the carriers have reported what they give to law enforcement. The NSA’s new spy center in Utah. Alternet also detailed eight ways that police can spy on you.

Academics Against Mass Surveillance STATEWATCH - monitoring the state and civil liberties in Europe US spy leaks: How intelligence is gathered 17 January 2014Last updated at 05:01 ET Documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden suggest the US government has undertaken mass surveillance operations across the globe - including eavesdropping on US allies. The claims have led US Senate's intelligence committee to pledge to review the way the country's biggest intelligence organisation - the National Security Agency (NSA) - undertakes surveillance. According to the leaks, what are the key methods the spy agency uses? 1. In June, the leaked documents revealed how the NSA had backdoor access to major technology companies. The files showed the agency had access to the servers of nine internet firms, including Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, in order to track online communication under a surveillance programme known as Prism. They claimed the project gave the NSA - along with the UK's eavesdropping station GCHQ - access to email, chat logs, stored data, voice traffic, file transfers and social networking data. 2. 3. 4. 5.
