Panopticon

Posted in Uncategorized by Geoffrey Morris on September 15, 2008

Today in class we read an excerpt from Bentham’s Panopticon, a tract describing the construction of a building to allow potentially constant but unverifiable observation of its inhabitants by a guard in a central tower.

We then used search engines and social networks to see what could be found out about each other online – the type of “surveilance” that could be done by anyone, anytime.
