Social Implications of the Ubiquitous Video Phone

As an avid cameraphone user (I love my Nokia 6682 and can't wait to upgrade to a new N-series phone - hint) must take note of the thoughtful aftermath of the most recent MSM-covered events that no one would have heard of were it not for video phones.

  1. UCLA camera phone footage captured a student being repeatedly tasered.
  2. Michael Richards losing it.
Having become a walking, talking media-making machine, surrounded by many GO and NGO cameras, turnabout is only fair play. There are great advantages to being a media-making machine in the 21st Century, not least of which is fair play.
