Inverse Surveillance Workshop

Joi Ito and Steve Mann are behind an International Workshop on Inverse Surveillance.

"Surveillance technologies have traditionally been defined as "Something that watches people". Inverse Surveillance, however, is defined as technology whose definition implies "People watching something", and can be exemplified by emerging empowering technologies such as Cameraphones, and Moblogs which allow for daily experience capture of all the world around us."

I'm currently reading Steve Mann's CYBORG, which is quite a cool book. Look forward to an igargoyle interview with Steve Mann on his book.
