Dr. Steve Mann: Once the stuff of science fiction, in the past several years the digital capture and recording of our everyday lives has evolved from fantasy to novelty to norm. Watch as Dr. Steve Mann, the “father of wearable computing” delivers a TEDxTalk on the social, political and legal implications of this shift, making the case for what he calls “The Veillance Contract: An integrity protocol for the cyborg age,” a principle encouraging the recording of one’s environment in a bid to protect society from corruption from above.
