06/07/2005: "All the world's a stage!"
Last night Jen and I went out for beers at the Island Pub (located a block from my house). I didn’t notice it right away but there was something that looked like either a camera or a barcode reader pointed right at us. When I did notice it I said “Oh god, is that a web cam?” and she just laughed like that couldn’t possibly be it, so we asked the bartender and she informed us that it was a streaming web cam and that it was broadcasting on their website at that very moment!
Now, I have some serious paranoia issues stemming from an incident when I was in a remote restaurant in a city of over 260 thousand people loudly going on and on about how in love I was with this guy that *I* had dumped, and it turns out he and his *new* girlfriend were sitting in a high-backed booth *directly* behind us! AKWARD!
My recent panic subsided to a degree when she mentioned there was no audio, still…I’m not sure having a streaming web cam in a bar is such a brilliant idea (or even legal?). Is there no expectation of privacy to drunkenly dish about boys without it being broadcast to the whole frackin universe?
