Following up, the DVD for the hit action/thriller movie “Eagle Eye” has been released. The second disc of the 2-disc special edition includes the commentary “Is My Cellphone Spying on Me?”, featuring reflections on technology and surveillance by the actors and producers of the film, Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Clearinghouse, and myself.
As I noted in the UW-M news story about the commentary:
My hope is that movies like this can raise awareness of the privacy and surveillance implications of new technology, and prompt a dialogue. We need to find ways to benefit from these emerging technologies without threatening the liberties we enjoy.
And, yes, I talk to fast when I get excited about a topic.
