Total Recall - Closer than you think!

As many of you will know, at the World Economic Forum annual conference in Davos this year, I presented on the concept of Total Recall Systems in which everything you do and say is captured to be replayed.  Well, lo and behold if it isn’t becoming a reality much faster than many of us thought.  My parents sent me this clip from the BBC which reports how a Google product that captures images of people on the street helped police catch a couple of muggers, because the cameras had snapped their images (and that of their victim) just a moment before the crime took place.

George Orwell is alive and well and living in Holland, apparently.
