Cradle to grave surveillance

Posted in database state, surveillance society by ukliberty on April 8, 2007

There is an article in today’s Sunday Telegraph entitled “Cradle to grave: How the state snoops on Britons from birth“, but in my opinion it doesn’t do the issue any justice.

It seems to me that a more interesting and in-depth read – albeit a little atypical of families in some respects – is “A week of life in the surveillance society, 2006”, which is part of the Report on the Surveillance Society (517Kb PDF) for the Information Commissioner by the Surveillance Studies Network.

Have a look at pages 49-63 (or 53-67 if you are using Acrobat), and perhaps pages 64-75 (or 68-79 in Acrobat) for a prediction how a week might look in 2016.
