Doug Vining Recognition aids discrimination

Here's an example of an interactive billboard that only screens an advert when it recognises a female walking past. The idea of the ad is to highlight gender discrimination by discriminating against men.

Remember that video a few months ago on YouTube that caused a global stir, of a father pumping a bullet into his daughter's laptop after she disobeyed him?

How much will you pay to stay under the radar? Meanwhile, see how much the big social media companies actually know about you!

Anton Musgrave The Value of Anonymity?

As the connected world explodes and the internet of people and things becomes a given, our online musings, tweets and pics create a rich canvas of who we really are. The question is whether anonymity and privacy will become more valuable or will it confine us to the digital desert?
