Cameras, Cameras, Everywhere
Published on April 18, 2013 by Sara Foss

As a staunch advocate for privacy, I've been somewhat leery of putting surveillance cameras all over our public and private spaces. However, my opinion began to evolve about three years ago, when my sister fell down some stairs in London. Her life was arguably saved by a surveillance camera - someone saw her fall and immediately contacted the British equivalent of 911. And the presence of cameras all over Boston seems very likely to produce solid leads and possibly lead to an arrest in the marathon bombing case.

So my opinion might be changing.

In any case, Farhad Manjoo makes the case for putting cameras everywhere over at Slate.
