You are not interesting enough for some stranger to record you. My public image is of great concern due to being an educator, but I resolve this by behaving myself in bars and pubs. I do not expect privacy when out in public, and the internet has taught me to behave as though word will get around.

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?

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.

genner: BarkingUnicorn: The danger lies in the loss of anonymity, not privacy.

"You're walking down the street and pass some Glass-wearer who thinks you're cute. Or whatever. A mumbled voice command and that stranger knows your name, address, phone number, email address, and whatever else Google can reveal. The snapshot that enabled this search is trivial; and it's actually quite legal. Far more important is the loss of your anonymity: the ability to be unknown."

....or you know you could just not list your contact info online.


I didn't.  Someone to whom I had to give it sold it to data brokers.

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.

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.

Define it then.  Go on and tell us that "I want to break your shiat" doesn't mean anything violent in the context you're using it in.  We won't laugh at you, I promise*.

No. I'll let you figure it out. You guys are good at it.

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

Good. You should be paranoid about it. You're going to film the wrong person.

By the way. What I said is cut and dry so that when people like you try to come back and say I said something I didn't it shows. 'Ima break your shiat' is carefully placed so people like you CAN'T say that I am going around telling people that I am going to assault them. I would say that.

You should expect that people are going to break your shiat when you have that stupid phone pointed at everything you are looking at even when you aren't recording anything because it looks stupid. Put it away.

That is not a reasonable expectation at all.  You are farking crazy.

Are you going to answer my question to your Weeners?

Are you going to start taking serious mental medications?


Mental medications? No.

Do you walk around with your cell phone pointed at everything you are looking at 100% of the time?

It's actually a really easy question.

Since you haven't answered or even denied it, I am ASSUMING that the answer is yes simply because you are equating using Google Glass to your cell phone as if they are the same things. The same way you are assuming that I go around assaulting people and breaking their cellphones.

On the other had you might answer 'No' you DON'T walk around with your cell phone out 100% of the time and realize that I am not even talking about you at all and you went off and made this whole damn thing way more complicated than it actually is.

This is what I like the most about you. Your ability to get right to the point.

What if after I smashed your face and recorded it with my helmet cam I uploaded it to youtube and strangers started laughed at you while you were walking down the street....wait a minute, this is why you don't want to be recorded, right?

Wrong. I didn't say that I didn't want to be recorded. I said I wanted to buy a helmet cam and go on a bicycle ride with you.

Perhaps I'm misremembering California law about audio/video recordings but as I recall it would be a felony to use these glasses in most no public places.  Further, use in even a public space would come with a whole lot of strings attached.

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.

Master Batorium: 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.


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.

Lusiphur: Master Batorium: 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.

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.

Cool.

I'm curious to see if it can withstand the force of a baseball bat.

I'm curious as to how resistant it will be to saltwater. I *really* want to try kite surfing with it, so my legless mother can see what I see and get a sense of how it feels.

I suspect I could also make some high-quality porn of my ugly butt and ze wife.



I hear ya.

Lusiphur: 2wolves: skinink: I like that Google is trying to create a generation of Gargoyles straight from Snow Crash.

Like ! = despise

I want to have a resonable expectation that vast chunks of my life stay away from being corporate fodder.

Why yes I use advert blockers, duckduckgo, and fairly good personal security.

Google turned to the dark side awhile ago.

"The dark side" in this case being offering you free services in exchange for serving you ads, while using your search history to at least try to make the ads somewhat relevant to you?

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.

Bored Horde: 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?


So your solution to feeling skeezy about something is to institute a set of laws based on the idea out thought crime? Great plan!

fisker: Karne: 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. I'm going to go buy a helmet cam.


Seriously though, in the larger scheme of things - who is the bigger douche - someone who is wearing a camera or a prick who would assault someone over it?  What if I wanted to smash your face for being ugly?

The question is not whether one has a right to expect anonymity.  The question is what consequences the loss of that expectation may have.  From the article I linked above:  " If you cannot trust that passersby are not going to photograph, record or "dox" you, then it makes sense to avoid them. We could become a world of hermits."

I needn't be doing anything untoward to be doxxed by a stranger.  It's a sport these days.  It should not be made any easier.

genner: Kahabut: BarkingUnicorn: genner: BarkingUnicorn: The danger lies in the loss of anonymity, not privacy.

"You're walking down the street and pass some Glass-wearer who thinks you're cute. Or whatever. A mumbled voice command and that stranger knows your name, address, phone number, email address, and whatever else Google can reveal. The snapshot that enabled this search is trivial; and it's actually quite legal. Far more important is the loss of your anonymity: the ability to be unknown."

....or you know you could just not list your contact info online.

I didn't.  Someone to whom I had to give it sold it to data brokers.

Had to?  As in they were going to arrest you if you failed to do so?  I have my doubts.  I'm guessing by "had to" you mean it was A) easier, B) faster c) the only way you could get something you wanted, even though you knew they would like sell your info.

They're also legally required to give you an opt out, assuming your in the US.


"Opt out" does not prevent my phone carrier from sharing my info with its subsidiaries or affiliates who it deems necessary to provide the service I have purchased and other services which it thinks I might want.  So there's a lot of leakage.  If my info ends up in the public domain it may be prohibitively difficult to determine how it got there.  So "opt out" provisions are false security.

In all fairness you know that most people couldn't drive with those things on, so that aspect of it doesn't sound as crazy to me.  The rest is derpy.  I love the fact that the move to ban driving with Google Glasses will just push the market for Google Driverless Cars.

YoOjo: Google aren't interested in your privacy, or your 'whatever it is you do that makes you paranoid', just in advertising stuff to you that they think you might buy, based on (up until now) whatever you look at online, and soon that'll be whatever you keep looking at while wearing these glasses.
So if you keep looking at the neighbor's daughter over the fence while she's sunbathing they won't be sending the thought police around, they'll just bombard you with ads for sex-addiction websites, or swimsuits, or cat food if the present ads are anything to go by.
But these will be in your face, literally.

FTFA: "It's important for society and democracy that people can chat and live without fear that they might end up being published or prosecuted,"

So what you are really saying is that it is important for society to be able to act like utter assholes to each other or lie and cheat when needed, without the "danger" of being recorded doing this? You have not thought out your or objection on moral grounds...
