The Transparent Society

In "The Transparent Society" David Brin argues that surveillance is inevitable, and the only way to control this surveillance is to make sure it's two ways. They can watch us, but only if we can watch them.

As outlandish as this may seem, but a world of total, two way transparency seems to be already here as young people post huge quantities of their lives on the Internet via MySpace and Facebook. I'm not that old, yet, but there seems to be a clear difference between how much of my personal life I will share online, and how much I see those younger than me sharing.
