Day Two : Task Two
How realistic is Little Brother? I don’t mean whether it is true… I mean how real is the technology mentioned in the novel?
One of the key ideas contained in the novel is that we are living in a world where so much information is gathered about us that privacy is almost impossible to maintain. What I’d like you to think about is whether this is true or not.
Choose one of the technology or surveillance ideas from the novel, and investigate it to see how true it is… is there really ‘gait recognition software’ in use? Do arfids exist? And as a bonus, can you think of how existing technology could be linked together to track what you do every day?
As ever, comments welcomed!
