DRONE STRIKE


A talk on expectations of privacy.

Do pervasive and intrusive technologies such as the use of camera drones for sur- and sousveillance threaten the value of public space for society and our democracy ? 

New technological developments and our tendency to shrug of their impact may cause a radical loss of privacy in public space. Public space through our loss of privacy and continuous privitization may be transformed in such a way that it can no longer function as a place for democratic actions.
