Sousveillance

Sousveillance1, watching from below, is becoming easier and easier as technology becomes cheaper. Of interest is the manner in which the watchers behave when watched. For example, we have stories about the police criminalising photographers2 and stopping MPs3 under the guise of supposed anti-terror powers.4

The situation brings to mind The Stanford Prison Experiment.
