Little Brother is Watching Too

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Mar 20, 2014

The concept of Little Brother is a play off George Orwell’s Big Brother in the book 1984, the all seeing eye of the government watching over the population from a single vantage point. Little Brother however, refers to the increase in private surveillance cameras and the capability to record video anywhere using portable devices or phones.

Interview with the ACLU

We talked to ACLU senior policy analyst Jay Stanley about the rise of private cameras and what that means for privacy.
