From the ACLU on WA State bill 1771:
“HB 1771 ensures that Washington can have the benefits of this new technology without turning into a ‘surveillance society’ in which the government tracks, records, and scrutinizes peoples movements without suspicion of wrongdoing.”
– From the ACLU on drones:
“The advance of technology presents both opportunities for and challenges to liberty. As new technologies are implemented, their impacts on civil liberties must be given consideration. The ACLU supports uses of technology that enhance privacy and freedom while opposing those that undermine liberty and move us closer to a surveillance society.”
– Additionally, from New Zealand, which will probably be seen here soon – in Wal-Mart:
“Little black boxes use satellite technology to keep secret track of shoppers’ movements and tell store owners what they’re doing,” quoting Morgan Tait in the New Zealand Herald.
