Submission + - Redefining Privacy in the Panopticon (practicaluseful.com)

G0rAk writes: "An interesting insight into how we are all colluding in building a Panopticon for ourselves and how Governments are late to the party. From the article:

Welcome to the Panopticon. Originally a concept created by a philosopher, Jeremy Bentham, in 1785 the Panopticon is a prison where every corner of the designated space is covered by a camera so prisoners feel that they are being watched all of the time and thus are more likely to behave.
Our problem is that the dividing line between what we consider private and public is getting increasingly fuzzy, we merrily publish great swathes of detail about our lives on blogs and increasingly on social networking sites.
