I joined presenter Paul Turton on ABC Radio’s Statewide for our second chat about things Internettish on Tuesday afternoon.
This week, we covered how easy it is to post video on the Internet, making it difficult for the police and other authorities to cover up “bad behaviour”, and the strengths and weaknesses of online dating and, um, scoring a quickie.
The program isn’t streamed on the Internet, but I did another cheap-arsed recording using my MacBook Pro’s built-in microphone. The audio is below — and the shit quality is my fault, not the ABC’s.
Statewide is broadcast on ABC Local Radio throughout NSW from 1600 to 1800 weekdays, except in Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and wherever else they have their own local drive-time program. I’m joining Paul every Tuesday afternoon at 1615 through until 15 December.

Hey Stil, You really should have a look at the work of Prof Andrew Goldsmith & Dr Katina Michael (@katinamichael) from University of Wollongong.
They have been championing the concept of sousveilance (the recording of an activity from the perspective of a participant in the activity) and within the Criminology fraternity.
The WA Police have recently said on public radio (6PR’s Drive program with Howard Sattler — worse luck — he is the WA equivalent of Alan Jones) that they are not upset with people being arrested, or questioned in public, filming the police activities. “It is just something we have to accept” was the quote, I believe.
Different police jurisdictions have different policies on this. The Met, for instance has just charged a woman (under the terrorism laws) when she started to use a mobile-phone camera to film the police doing a stop-&-search of her boyfriend “for illicit drugs”.
The term term equiveilance is probably closer to what you are describing.
