[TOT]Google Glass Banned by Food Chain Giant McDonalds? - Page 8

post #71 of 227
The issue we are facing is technology is outpacing our ability to use it responsibly. We have no precedent for this kind of invasion of privacy. This comes back to a very wise say. Just because we can do a thing does not mean we SHOULD do that thing.

I never really thought about that before, but I agree. We use our technology extremely irresponsibly, from malware to texting while driving. I think that this is inevitable though, people will always find a way to abuse things or use them in a manner that wasn't intended.

Nonsense, soon we will have a pair of regular shades that will record w/o anyone knowing. It's just a matter of time.

The hilarious part about this is that most of this fear could be alleviated by adding a simple low power LED indicator on the side when recording. I'm not sure what genius thought it would be a great idea to not include one. Regardless of the privacy rights of us and businesses the indicator should have been put there just as a courtesy to everyone around you. I know I'd sure like to at least know you're filming.. with a cell phone you're kind of obvious when filming if you want to get a clear shot rolleyes.gif

lol at people thinking Mcdonalds is breaching peoples rights when the god damn Google Glass (and every google associated device) is doing that 24/7. Good on Mcdonalds for banning the invasive data collecting machinery.

This has been happening for a long time now.

For example, stem cell research. Almost no one has objections with stem cell research being done with NON-embryonic ones, but the major "fight" has been with that one, tiny, facet of the all encompassing stem cell research. Great strides have been made with non-embryonic stem cells, and I have long since said that we should FIRST be focusing on them until we as a species delve into more controversial aspects of it.

To me, your comment of "Just because we can do a thing does not mean we SHOULD do that thing." reminded me of that.

But I digress.

Lol, as if McDonalds doesn't have video cameras filming you all the time while you are in there. McDonalds just doesn't want you filming their crap.

How do we go about assessing how to adequately use the technology we are developing?

These sorts of ethical discussions are the ones people don't really like to have until after the fact, unfortunately, in a lot of cases.

I agree that it is inevitable that this type of recording technology will be prevalent in 10 years time. I think the more profound question is who is allowed the data, and what that entity's responsibilities and privileges are.

I heard an interesting discussion on this subject matter here:

http://www.wnyc.org/shows/lopate/2013/may/07/jaron-lanier-asks-who-owns-future/

I admit I don't know much about Jaron Lanier/his credentials, but the conversation is a profound one nonetheless.

the human right violation comes from when your being recorded in a restaurant, at the bar, in your car, through your home windows, over the garden fence "AND" being JUDGED globally and segmented socially as a person type, because thats what people do... welcome to humanity. this just gives people so many more reasons to be d1ck5 about things
If you're worried about being hacked by the NSA I assume you don't have a webcam or microphone/headset on your computer, or any sort of smartphone/tablet device in your house either? We've been hearing the same things about smartphones for years.

Such an indicator doesn't really solve anything, same with the cell phone cameras being legally required to have a shutter sound. There are numerous camera apps or ROMs that just disable the sound anyway.

As is their right. If you don't like being filmed there, don't eat there or work there.

Also, depending on the state, the whole Google Glass issue may blow up in the face of the Google Glass owners.

For example, in the state of Maryland, you can record the VIDEO of someone without their consent, but you can NOT record the audio.

Audio Recording
Most audio recordings without consent of one or all parties are illegal.
Recording audio is very different from video, there are definite federal and state laws prohibiting surreptitious recording and monitoring of audio conversations. These laws are taken very seriously by authorities and failure to abide by them could result in severe consequences.
There are two types of defined recording situations for audio recording. They are usually referred to as "One Party Consent" and "Two Party Consent".
"Two Party Consent" means the person recording the conversation must notify all of the other parties that the recording is taking place and they must consent to the recording.

States with "Two party Consent" for audio recording

California - Two Party
Connecticut - Two Party
Delaware - Two Party
Florida - Two Party
Hawaii - Two Party
Illinois - Two Party
Kansas - Two Party
Maryland - Two Party
Massachusetts - Two Party
Michigan - Two Party
Montana - Two Party
Nevada - Two Party
New Hampshire - Two Party
Pennsylvania - Two Party
Utah - Two Party
Washington - Two Party
