The death of privacy, continued

This weekend saw a flurry of stories about how easy it is for us to take and share video of each other, with the predictable result of destabilizing carefully constructed public images. Here are two out of many.

  • Next, Instapundit links to a story by Patrick Hynes, John McCain's blog guy, about video clips and responses in politics. 
Now that we have cheap video cameras on us all the time (e.g., the ones built into our phones), and an infrastructure that can distribute them easily and cheaply (e.g., YouTube and Flickr), it's trivial to execute these sorts of gotchas.
