Say it loud

Say it loud: Nashville blogger Blake Wylie (NashvilleFiles) receives props from the Tennessean for leading a successful charge
against a big brother audio monitoring system planned by Metro
Nashville police that would have allowed them to randomly eavesdrop on
conversations in public places. (A video network, without audio
recording devices, remains on track, however.)

Update: On a related note, today’s NYT has a story about how a wide array of video evidence can be used by defendents, as well as the police. About the article, Dan Gillmor says, “The ubiquity of cameras has disturbing privacy implications. But it also means that the truth won’t always stay buried.”
