Live blogging, day 2

Today’s keynote Simon Davis from Privacy International:

– in Britain CCTV surveillance has run rampant
– but only one in every 250 images is useful to law enforcement
– subtle changes in the way people gather and behave in British cities have occurred
– all data from Internet, cell and land lines are stored, BY LAW, by ISPs and phone companies
– who you call, where you are, what you say are all being recorded and stored
– over 1,000 requests PER DAY for info contained in this database…

1984 anyone?
