Innovations In the Age of Surveillance

CCTV, Farringdon Underground Station, London, 3 September, 2008

As the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks draws nearer, I can’t help but notice how the surveillance industry has grown. Ten years ago, surveillance systems are rarely considered as a must have except for large enterprises.

CCTV in operation.” That would be pretty amusing except that the tiny newsstand has at least three CCTV domes (I saw those personally, there may be more). And it’s only the size of my apartment’s bathroom!

This begs the question, are times so turbulent nowadays that we really need this level of monitoring? Are CCTVs getting more affordable that even your typical mom and pop corner store can afford them?

I was looking for information on CCTVs for a project when I chanced upon this store that has a dedicated spy camera section. Suddenly CCTV seems like dinosaurs when compared to the sleek and stealthy cameras disguised as everyday objects (teddy bears, MP3 players, a can of Coke and even a rock to name a few). I always thought that such devices are just seen in movies… and even if they really exist, they would probably be in the hands of spy agencies that would be extremely unlikely to have any interest in an ordinary guy like me anyway.
