Unbound Spiral: Picture This from Korea

November 12, 2003 10:59 AM

Sometimes I look back and think hmmm that blog came out of left field. That was how I felt when I posted on camera phones. There's an opportunity to use this tech beneficially and I have a particular interest in tying them to photo blogs in corporate environments.

Well the heavy hand of regulation is falling again. South Korea has mandated that all new camera-phones emit a 65db beep whenever a picture is taken. Now the "beeps" in conferences won't represent deleted audio tape edits. Frankly this type of regulation makes no sense. See Alan's report. Consider too how many times a day one is on security cams (look at England's numbers) and then how long till "nano-dust" is available for pictures? Sprinke and vacuum!
