I’m in session at the Surveillance Games Workshop, part of the New Transparency: Surveillance & Social Project (my new employer), at Simon Fraser University in rainy Vancouver. Lots of good sessions so far about citizen spying and state surveillance around mega-events, such as the Olympics. Neat bunch of folks, lots of talk about democratic interventions into society (aka activism), which is heartening. You can follow the live tweets coming fast and furious (smith is being particularly diligent), under the Twitter hashtag #sgw. Blogging is mildly passé…
