James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Welcome to the time of de-sensitization!

On Nightline we are now getting the response of people in the UAE to the nagging questions of the moment.

Last night I asked the UAE how they felt about the growing global phenomenon to use video surveillance,  whether it works or not, in public and private environments.

The response was very interesting.

While all were in agreement that public surveillance is a good thing there was not a resounding cry against private space surveillance.

Is it possible there is so much watching going on that we have just come to accept it?

Or are we not tuned into how much of our daily activity is being watched and recorded?

Listen to what the UAE had to say.

What do you think? Is it a question of safety or is it a question of privacy?
