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.
