Dangerous Driving in the UK

I used to think that driving in the UK was dangerous enough (you know, driving on the left side of the road while trying to juggle a stick shift and cell phone).


Today, both Bruce Schneier and Kim Cameron provide insightful comments on the the UK plan to monitor every car journey: “Britain is to become the first country in the world where the movements of all vehicles on the roads are recorded. A new national surveillance system will hold the records for at least two years.”

I first read George Orwell’s 1984 in 1968 when I was 15 years old. I was frankly terrified at the prospect of “Big Brother,” but dismissed the concept as fantasy. Now, almost 40 years later, I find it sad that we are abusing the fanstastic technology in our world to progress, step by step, towards Orwell’s prophetic vision.

It worked. Wahoo!
