I can't decide: Should I wear Google Glass while riding my Segway, or should I wear Google Glass while riding my recumbent bicycle? I need to pick a mode of nerd transportation in time to go to the "Firefly" con!

fisker: SN1987a goes boom: So I take it they are up in arms about cell phone cameras as well? No? Well, then they can EABOD, a whole bag even.

Do you walk around with your cell phone out, pointing it at everything you look at 100% of the time? If you do then yes, Ima break your shiat. Doesn't matter if you are recording or not.

Put that shiat down and away.

Now.

You look stupid waving that thing around all the time. Put it in your pocket. You're not even recording anything.


I keep hearing that tough guy thing all the time when people talk about google glass.  It's weird that no tough guy has tried to get all bad ass with me about my helmet cam.  I guess it's easier on the internet.

You are going to have a real hard time in the coming future, I feel kind of sorry for you.  I guess you are moving to some remote farm soon?

No, you already look like one.

Endive Wombat: There is nothing further to discuss on the matter


Well, except that people may use them in private or semi-private spaces too.  There are places like locker rooms where we have specifically said that you aren't allowed to take pictures of other people without their permission.  In most private settings it's likely the people involved are all in the same conversation- Federal interstate law, and some state laws allow recording as long as you are a participant in the conversation, but not all state laws do.  There are also limits, even with photographing people in public, that apply.  I remember from journalism class, for instance, if you take a picture of a couple sitting at a fountain kissing, you can run the picture with a headline like 'Spring Time Love'.  If you use it with the caption 'AIDS Epidemic' you can get in trouble if you don't get their permission.  And again, that varies a bit from state to state.

The question is, do we fight the invasion of privacy, or just assume so many guys will be dropping dollar bills on the street to get girls to bend over that in the flood of butt pictures any one particular butt picture doesn't represent a big invasion of privacy?

Aside- are there going to be prescription Google glasses?

I wasn't going to shell out the $$ to get a pair of google glass, but if it'll really scare that many activists, I just might have to eat it.

Some time ago I Googled my own (real) name.  One of the places I found it was on yellowpages.com, complete with middle initial and Jr. suffix -- in a county where I have never lived.  My grandparents had lived in that county, and Dad (same name, minus Jr.) had stayed with them in their last years.  They got the location wrong by a mile or two.

Think about that when contemplating "doxing."  How accurate is that contact information?  Some dude does something crazy in public, somebody else doxes him -- with your name and address or mine.

iheartscotch: Yeah; it's not like the government will ask google to keep copies of all the videos shot with those glasses or anything.

/ 1984 is not a how-to book


The flip side of this is a hundred million Little Brothers recording what the government does 24/7. Government and companies can barely get away with being rude to someone now without causing online outrage these days. An oppressive government really fears people being able to easily document what they are doing and spread it to the world.

Also, it is harder to frame someone for a crime when you have cell phones, Google Glass, and Facebook check ins generating alibis for your whereabouts. Just like all of those Russians fighting dirty cops and scam artists with dash cams, you can argue that these types of things protect you more often than they hurt you.

Agreed.  What needs regulation is the use to which data is put, not its collection.

I am not harmed by someone fapping privately to a pic of my public nose-picking.  I am harmed if he enables the whole Internet to order cases of Kleenex shipped to my home.  I am not harmed by his storage of my pic on Google Drive.  I am harmed by government's use of it to prosecute me for public nose-picking.

You signed away your right when you checked the wrong box when you got a landline phone or bought a house.
Carelessness will always be exploited.
All this info has been publicly available  for decades. Technology is just making people aware of the fact.
Back in the day they had these things called phone books that could be used to lookup address and phone number info and this other thing called a hall of records where all this other info could be found.

Technology has vastly increased the ease with which harm can be done and the magnitude of the harm that is actually done.  It's high time to rein in both.

The My Little Pony Killer: Folks, when you are out in public, you have no reasonable expectations to personal privacy. Somebody might be recording you on their cell phone and you wouldn't be able to do a damn thing about it (unless you're an ITG and want to pretend that you'd beat them up or break their camera), the google glass isn't going to be very different.  Only difference being that the people recording you will look like total jackasses now.


Why don't we have an expectation of privacy?  There's a difference, I think we could agree, between these two cases:  First, someone taking a photo of their friend on the beach, and innocently catching bystanders in the background - the photo is posted to facebook.  Second, someone with a high-power telephoto camera taking pictures of women sunning on the beach - the photos are posted to a sexual website.

We so often talk about intent when it comes to criminal matters.  The intent in the first case is to take a photo of your friend.  The intent in the second is to sexualize, without consent, a stranger.  Our current system of 'zero expectations of privacy when in public' ignores the consent of the women being harassed by photographers.  Wouldn't you agree that there is a malicious intent towards the second case?

1. I'll somehow survive not being in someone's sales demographic.

2. Yet I get the information I need by investing perhaps an extra minute. I'm ok with that.

God forbid! How dare they?!?

Also, duckduckgo has a terrible search algo that returns crappy results.

1. I'll somehow survive not being in someone's sales demographic.

2. Yet I get the information I need by investing perhaps an extra minute. I'm ok with that.

Also why I pay for almost everything with cash, will not use my actual name or address on any shopping discount cards, etc.


That's not "being careful"; that's a mental illness. I'm not saying that to judge, just wanted to make sure you knew.

It's no different than people who put 6 locks on their doors and double check all of them every couple of hours. Or people who won't fly because they're convinced they'll fall out of the sky. It's a critical failure to properly calculate risk, and results in a noticeably diminished quality of life, without you even realizing that you are impacting your life negatively.

Lusiphur: just wanted to make sure you knew.


Oh, we know.

All of us 'mentally ill' people need to stay out of the way of all the Google Glass wearers and Facebook users. Thanks for condescending to the possibility we didn't already know that.

You have it all under control and are simply diagnosing us for our protection.

If you want to record stuff and you want to biatch about other people who biatch about their privacy then we have the right to view everything you have ever recorded. Even your private stuff. What are you hiding, right?

If you are going to equate privacy to 'hiding' things, then I want to see everything you have recorded and I want to know what you are going to do with it.

If you can no longer masturbate to the image of the girl you saw early that day and need to record it, then don't be surprised when gangs of people come up on your ass while you are sitting on a park bench with your cool new technological gadget that everyone else is using because they don't want to be left out or called mentally ill because they don't understand how these things affect their lives negativity tackle your old filthy bastard ass and demolish you.

There's a difference between not wanting to get Glass or use Facebook, and going out of your way to avoid anything identifying you anywhere because some nebulous 'them' has nefarious plans for you.

But your butthurt is amusing, so carry on.

I'm sobbing and you are cloaking me with your wisdom. People don't want to join up with Facebook or buy Google Glass and you are suddenly a doctor.

The point isn't that privacy is stupid, and shouldn't exist at all (though i strongly believe that an end to privacy is the best thing that can happen to the human race. Just not practical as of now). The point is that you do not get to impose your self important right to privacy on strangers in public. When you choose to enter the public space, you give up the right to control how people see you, whether they record you, our what they do with that recording, provided it doesn't cause you real, provable damage. To insist otherwise, to the point of threatening ITG violence, is absolutely farking insane.

No one cares about your feelings. Get over it, or stay in your mothers's basements, you self-righteous paranoid farks.

Mike Bloomberg says it's Big Brother so get used to it. He was talking about government, but if government is  recording your every move, your privacy is already gone so what are you protecting? Surveillance technology for everybody!

I saw one of those twatwaffles at a conference recently and wanted to punch him in the face and take his glasses, take them into the bathroom with me, make a huge dump and then duct tape the glasses, facing downward, so that the device could record the gradual decomposition of said dump over time.

fisker: I like how the argument is, 'It's OK because there are already cameras everywhere.'

As if turning a lit matchstick into nuclear holocaust is OK because fire already exists.

'Fire is hot, dude. Didn't you know that? What's the big deal?'


What cocktail of drugs do I need to eat to understand that logic?

You're being recorded. Right now. Deal with it.

fisker: SN1987a goes boom: So I take it they are up in arms about cell phone cameras as well? No? Well, then they can EABOD, a whole bag even.

Do you walk around with your cell phone out, pointing it at everything you look at 100% of the time? If you do then yes, Ima break your shiat. Doesn't matter if you are recording or not.

Put that shiat down and away.

Now.

You look stupid waving that thing around all the time. Put it in your pocket. You're not even recording anything.


So...you go up to random people on their phones and break them?  You haven't been out in public much in the past 10 years, have you?  This is normal behavior.

First it is assumed that I want to assault people. Now it is assumed that I want to break your phones.

I want to break your shiat.

Slang. It's been around longer than your need to walk around with your cell phone out pointing it at everything you are looking at even when you aren't recording anything.

Any other advice or commands?

There is no room for assumption here.   You admit "Imma break your shiat."  This is pretty cut and dry.
