Platterwatch

Posted on:January 14 2008

Most People already have heard of Mr. Schäuble, the Minister of the Interior of Germany who is constantly and partially successfully trying to convert Germany into a surveillance state. Platter is the Austrian equivalent of Schäuble. He is less known, but more effective: Here in Austria, we already have a fully functional surveillance state since 2 weeks.
Now, there is a website named platterwatch.at, which is a community driven approach to fight back: To follow and observe Mr. Platter and to document his life, via youtube videos, flickr pictures and blog posts. A nice idea, IMO. Unfortunately, they don't observe his private life, only the public part, because this would be illegal otherwise.

Nothing stopping you from moving to Canada. I think I'd like to go there someday. Just as soon as NewEgg starts shipping there. :D

I would like to see how this fashists react, when someone is publishing their private data.

I think this website should go further and publish the private data of this dude and Schäuble!
They should stalk him everywhere he goes, so he can feel how it would be to be like a glassy citizen.

I like the T-Shirts with Schäuble on it and the text: "Steht auf, wenn Ihr für Freiheit seid"

sry for my hard words .. but I get freaking mad when I am thinking about this dudes

IMO this just proves that the democracy doesn't work propertly today, since most people probably doesn't want a surveillance state. Sorry for my bad english.
