Now that spring is in the air in Argentina I feel it's time to resurrect this blog.

As I'm passionate about indiviualism and freedom I'll start with this pretty worrying article from the UKs Telegraph about artificially intelligent CCTV.

A new generation of Minority Report-style security cameras that can detect criminals before they strike could be in operation across Britain within five years, scientists claim.

The CCTV technology identifies suspicious individuals and behaviour and then acts to stamp out crimes before they happen.

Looks like I won't be wearing hoodies for mugh longer when visiting friends and family in the UK:

Criteria that ISIS (Integrated Sensor Information System) will look for are likely to include clothing such as hooded tops, sudden movements, odd behaviour such as moving seats and verbal aggression.

But my favourite part has to be:

“We have four million cameras across the country at present but their impact on anti-social behaviour is actually fairly negligible,” said Dr Paul Miller, who is part of the 50-strong team.

Yay, 4 MILLION cameras have made a negligible impact on anti-social behaviour, we obviously need more new and improved CCTV cameras.
