Big Brother will put viewers in the director's chair this Friday when the programme's Web site goes live with groundbreaking Internet technology. The second instalment of last summer's voyeuristic experiment in television will let viewers control cameras that stream live video over the Internet. Programme maker Channel Four has fitted the infamous house with Be Here cameras, to be dubbed as PanCams, which can stream panoramic images to an individual PC or to a wide audience and allow the users to view a portion of the shot at one time. TranCams will also empower the audience to direct the camera lens onto the person that they most want to watch. As last year, live video-streaming promises will deliver images to users' desktops, allowing them to see the action at the same time as the production crew, way ahead of television viewers. However this year, the uptake of high speed Internet connections such as ADSL mean there will be no time delay. "The only delay is encoding -- the … [Read more...] about Internet users will have control of Big Brother cameras
Russia's lower house of parliament on Friday passed a set of measures intended to crack down on terrorism in the country. Some, like Edward Snowden, have said the proposed laws are at odds with the personal freedom of Russian citizens. The set of legislation is dubbed "Yarovaya law," the Guardian reported. It stipulates that any pro-terrorism sentiment espoused on the internet can be punished with up to seven years in prison. Service providers will now also be urged to store records of all communication for six months and metadata for three years, the publication reports.

As the tangle of privacy and security issues tightens in the aftermath of Sept. 11, Jack Palmer forges ahead, claiming to put a kinder, gentler face on Big Brother.Palmer is the CEO of ICaughtYou, a private Bonita Springs, Fla.-based company that allows corporations to monitor their employees' Internet usage. His company has been one of the unsuspecting beneficiaries of the terrorist attacks. Even before Sept. 11, the downturn in the economy led to a heightened interest in worker productivity and Internet security. Now, a new emphasis on national security has put corporate security in the spotlight and has led to a quadrupling of hits on the ICaughtYou Web site.The company was born two years ago, when a tech guru for a government agency suspected his wife was cheating on him. He recruited fellow programmers from America Online and Coca-Cola to help him figure out a way to monitor her instant message sessions. The technology fulfilled its mission and became the core product of … [Read more...] about Big Brother’s watching
"Big Brother" entered into the lexicon and so vividly into the public imagination through George Orwell’s 1984. The main character, Winston, lives under totalitarian rule in a country named Oceania. His every movement and even thought are under surveillance. Any involvement by a government in what its citizens believe to be a private exchange is inevitably viewed in the context of this dystopia. Technology, particularly social media, augments the modes and means of communication—but also the ease with which it can be monitored—causing privacy, the law, and public opinion to clash. This is further complicated by the tools of protest and the ways of quelling it also being one and the same. Among those inserting themselves into the fray is Anonymous. On November 5, in what it's calling "Operation Fox Hunt," Anonymous is seeking retaliation for "Fox News' propaganda" regarding Occupy Wall Street by taking over the cable channel's website. The chosen date is a nod to plots … [Read more...] about Anonymous and Big Brother: Spy vs. Spy?
