Internet and the open era!

I think, in the near future, we will be in an era where everything will be on record!

The power the Internet puts to the end user is mind boggling. The end user is a publisher! And the potential audience is the entire world!

Rules that earlier governed so many aspects of society will be sheared - they already are to good extents. Case in point: this incident where a man blogs about the situation he faced when he tried to picture an open ATM. This was later slashdotted and he finally went on a local news paper as well!

Well, my point is not to argue about the right/wrong of this incident - but would people behave the same way if they knew they were on camera all the time?

If only something like this happened in Chennai or any city in India for that matter! Interesting incidents already anyone?
