Surveillance or Sousveillance?

"The longer term effects of living in a surveillance society where the State intrudes on your life is bad, but the effects of living in a sousvellance society where you are under constant observation by random strangers are hard to judge. At least a sousvellace society also means the watchers are also under observation (as the article notes, the numbers and placement of cameras is easily accessable via crowdsourcing and the Internet)."
