Cameras, Cameras everywhere

Sure, in LA, they get freaked out by two cameras covering an Alley Market where some DVD pirating happens. They’ve never been to DC.

I work downtown by Metro Center, surveillance cameras are no surprise to me. All throughout the city there are those ubiquitious black globes concealing a video camera likely controlled by remote to view various viewpoints of all those federal “target” buildings like the BEP, the White House, the Capitol, the Reagan buildings, the Metro, the list goes on and on and on.

I wonder, has anything good actually come of being on tape 24/7 downtown? Is this the beginning of Citizen Oversight of Greg Bear’s Queen of Angels books? Who knows.

Me, I’ll just start noting down where I see them.
