@email@example.com @DashEquals@linuxrocks.online I walk outside in public sometimes but if I find out someone archived a video of every single time I was in public i'd be pretty mad too. even if they say that they wouldnt record me if I was hiding
@matt @DashEquals@linuxrocks.online "can be done" doesnt mean "should be done"
@themorgangoats @spookcentral @DashEquals This. People are still entitled to expectations of privacy even "in public," which is foundational to things like ethics standards for behavioral research on people. For example, you might expect to be seen but not recorded. Ergo, researchers can't record people in public without permission, although they can people-watch and take general notes.
It seems to me that archiving public posts is exactly the same thing as recording people in public.
