Big Brotherhood Browser
The Big Brotherhood Browser introduces fictional scenario about a country, where all citizens since birth get implanted personal identity chip which permanently replicates much of their sensory attitudes towards national, social and private networks. Several levels of shared privacy, create multiple presence, allowing network “clients” to determine a distant party and to visit it remotely with “agents’” “remote eyes” (implant cameras) and “remote ears” (microphones).
*sousveillance – The term “sousveillance”, coined by Steve Mann stems from the contrasting French words sur, meaning “above”, and sous, meaning “below”, i.e. surveillance denotes the watching from above, whereas “sousveillance” denotes bringing the camera or other means of observation down to human level.
