Loss of privacy



This film took ten years to make and culled from 5000 hours of footage.  It reveals the effect the (social) web is having on our society, seen through the eyes of the greatest internet pioneer you have probably never heard of, Josh Harris.  I found project "Quiet: We Live in Public" the most intriguing.  In this project over 100 artists lived together in cubicles underground for 30 days. Everything is filmed by cameras following every move, their lives streamed life on the web.  This all happened before Big Brother became a hit or social networking was even known.
