Faszinierender Talk von Hasan Elahi, der 2002 auf der Terrorist-Watchlist des FBI landete. Nachdem sie die Situation geklärt hatten, teilte er ihnen ab diesem Zeitpunkt immer seinen Aufenthaltsort mit und gab Reisetipps, was sich zu einem Privacy-Überwachungs-Kunstprojekt entwickelte: „After he ended up on a watch list by accident, artist Hasan Elahi was advised by his local FBI agents to let them know when he was traveling. He did that and more … much more. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2011, July 2011, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Duration: 14:31.)“

Der Mann hatte vorgestern auch einen Artikel in der NYTimes, in dem er praktisch dasselbe erzählt: You Want to Track Me? Here You Go, F.B.I. (via MeFi)

On my Web site, I compiled various databases that show the airports I’ve been in, food I’ve eaten at home, food I’ve eaten on the road, random hotel beds I’ve slept in, various parking lots off Interstate 80 that I parked in, empty train stations I saw, as well as very specific information like photos of the tacos I ate in Mexico City between July 5 and 7, and the toilets I used. […]

PEOPLE who visit my site — and my server logs indicate repeat visits from the Department of Homeland Security, the C.I.A., the National Reconnaissance Office and the Executive Office of the President — don’t find my information organized clearly. In fact, the interface I use is deliberately user-unfriendly. A lot of work is required to thread together the thousands of available points of information. By putting everything about me out there, I am simultaneously telling everything and nothing about my life. Despite the barrage of information about me that is publicly available, I live a surprisingly private and anonymous life.
