"Sousveillance" "Brin’s corollary to Moore’s Law” Cameras vs. Authority/Privacy?

"you can be arrested for filming cops on duty"
"Brin’s corollary to Moore’s Law -- the cameras will get smaller, cheaper, more numerous and more mobile every year. 

"So figures of authority might as well get used to it now.

"In several states, you can be arrested for filming cops on duty, even in a public place. With cameras growing ever smaller, conflicts are going to arise more often and there can only be one outcome. Police are just going to have to get used to it. Much as I forecast in The Transparent Society (1997).
"make some allowances for good people, caught making a rare mistake."
