29/366 Big Brother

Since I work for a company that is across the country from me, I need to go out of town for a week or two at a time. We bought this so my wife and I could try video rather than just a straight phone call. We haven't used them yet.

Thinking further on this, it is amazing what people will stream across the internet or put up on youtube. This internet revolution we are in the middle of has changed what people think of as privacy and I'm not sure I'm comfortable with it.

Of course the latest craze to put cameras everywhere to try to catch scofflaws doesn't help either. I'm sort of wondering what George Orwell would think.
