Re: <nettime> Harassing People for Watching a Movie in a Cinema


We used to say, back when collaborating with Steve Mann in the late 1990s
that it isn't a camera, it's a visual memory prosthetic. I think it's an
accurate description. 

It's disappointing that the writer was intimidated into giving up all of
his memories to the police in order to clear his name under a presumption
of guilt.
