Cool Stuff

I travel on interstate  I-380 from Cedar Rapids to North Liberty daily.   Over the last month I’ve noticed a string of web cam’s be installed.  Traveling south from Cedar Rapids the start at the Highway 30 bridge and continue all the way down to North Liberty.   I’ve counted more than 10 of them.   Each camera has line of site of the next one.

This concerns me a little.    Did anyone even know they were there?  or that they were being put up?   I realize in today’s world with almost everyone having a camera in pocket and our addiction to social networks, that we have little or no privacy.    Even with all these intrusions, I’ve never had the uneasy feeling that “big brother” is watching.     I’m starting to get that “feeling” now.   

I do see both sides of the coin.  This could be good as it would improve safety in the corridor.   It could also be a major privacy concern.   

I would love to hear your thoughts on these eyes in the sky.   Please post a comment, or drop me a line- Canman
