Smile for the camera :-)

I love this posting from Lauren. He’s spot on! He talks about NY.
However when I was in London, apart from the CCTV cameras everywhere, I was surprised on the buses to find signs with a ‘smiley face’ saying ‘smile for the camera’. Quite amusing, and I guess in this way it gains social acceptance, it almost becomes fun to be filmed! Also what Lauren mentions briefly is the evolution of surveillance by cameras and analysis of the data collected. It is improving rapidly, a lot of money is being invested. Not only in face recognition but gait recognition, and of course improving quality and granularity of the pictures collected. Smile for the camara 🙂
