Feel Safer Now, Episode 124563 – Eye-in-the-Sky

In yet another ridiculous attempt to make us “feel safer”  BoingBoing is reporting:

“European airlines are prototyping a Panopticon-in-the-sky: cameras trained on every passenger in flight, married to some kind of snake-oil “terrorism detection” software that will be able to tell if the guy in 11J is planning to rush the cockpit.”

Having just finished Cory Doctorow‘s awesome book Little Brother (go buy this book NOW!) this is a timely mention of just how far, and how misguided, our war on terror has become.
