Of course people want to hide things, it's human nature. Unfortunately, folks, what you do in public is public. Period. If you are in a public area, or where you can be seen from one, you have no reasonable expectation of privacy. It seems rather silly to complain about privacy violations when one acts publicly.

I can see no reason why a camera in a public area violates anyone's rights any more than a policeman watching from the corner. As a matter of fact, the camera is less likely to bear false witness, which is the only valid concern in this case.

Real programmers don't write in BASIC. Actually, no programmers write in BASIC after reaching puberty.
