Sur vs. sous

People are always going on about surveillance, but they spend less time thinking about sousveillance. This is just as much of a problem and it is uncontrolled: when everyone has cameraphones, all of us are under sousveillance all the time. This isn't a major problem for nonentities like me, but it must get a bit wearing for anyone with the slightest degree of celebrity as they wouldn't get a private moment to the themselves anywhere. We have to wonder what sort of society this will create, if you ask me.

In the future, everyone will be famous to fifteen people.
