Summary What do you know about the new surveillance state that has been created in the wake of pervasive computing and#x96; that is, the increasing use of very small and simple computers in all sorts of host and#x96; from your computer to your coat? Well, these little computers can communicate via the web and form powerful networks whose emergent behaviour can be very complex, intelligent, and invasive. The question is: how much of an infringement on privacy are they? Could these intelligent networks be used by governments, criminals or terrorists to undermine privacy or commit crimes? From CCTVs to blogging, fro.
