The Eye Generation

Eye Generation
In today's (30th Oct 2005) Sunday Times Magazine, there's an article entitled "The Eye Generation" which explores the role of cameraphones in today's increasingly digital culture. I'm quoted a bit talking about cameraphones and the law, drawing on my "Citizen Justice or Opening Pandora's Box?" post and an interview I did with Sheryl-Lee Kerr. While I'm far from eloquent at times, I'm glad this made it in:
Mr Leaver also hesitates at the thought of greater legislation to deal with the potential problems. "It's (the camerphone) definitely more of a good than a bad thing. But the negative consequences could be so dramatic that you want to think them though now," he says. "We at least need to start the conversation (about laws). I am hesitant to say legislate. But we need to start critically thinking about these issues before it's something we're faced with."
I'm not sure if the Sunday Times will put a version of this article online or not, but I'll link to it if they do (not all of their print copy makes it to their website).

Update: In case anyone felt like reading the article, here's a PDF of the "Eye Generation" article.
