World Wide Wednesday: “Tesco Towns”, security cameras, and the world’s greenest buildings..According to the Guardian UK, “Tesco Towns”–towns built almost entirely by the supermarket giant–are the newest phenomena acting on the UK’s urban landscape. In what has been termed “supermarket-led mixed-use development”, construction is currently underway on a number of towns that are to include hundreds of Tesco homes, “a Tesco school, a Tesco swimming pool and, of course, a local Tesco superstore”... technologies now available - including the monitoring of virtually all digital information - have advanced to the point where much of the essential apparatus of a police state is already in place..Governmental surveillance is not about the government collecting the information you're sharing publicly and willingly; it's about collecting the information you don't think you're sharing at all, such as the online searches you do on search engines... or private emails or text messages... or the location of your mobile phone at any time..Facebook is not your friend, it is a surveillance engine...
