Patroling the Web


World Wide Web Watch

From the BBC, 2006: "Web users to 'patrol' US border":

"Web users worldwide will be able to watch the Texas border A US state is to enlist web users in its fight against illegal immigration by offering live surveillance footage of the Mexican border on the internet. The plan will allow web users worldwide to watch Texas' border with Mexico and phone the authorities if they spot any apparently illegal crossings."

From Heath Bunting, 1997: CCTV - World Wide Watch: Improve self policing with further absented police force. [posted by Chris Byrne on Institute for Distributed Creativity's List]
