tracking devices

Thanks to Mike for his comment on ethics and surveillance–I’ve only skimmed it because I need to get to bed, but felt I should make the connection between it and seeing The Island tonight. Ever since I started the new job, I’ve felt a bit more “tracked” and “branded” myself. Not quite the cloning conspiracy from the film, but it certainly made me think about the scientific possibilites out there.
What I actually edit, for those of you interested, are the surveillance reports of investigators who have been hired to check on those claimants filing workman’s compensation claims. It can be pretty interesting stuff to read, particularly on days when we get a lot of incriminating video! The points of Christopher Carter that Mike summarized in his post seem most comparable to my ideas of/recent experiences with corporate surveillance, but let me sleep on it, read a little more, and then make more of a statement then.
