Believe it or not, Mitt Romney and William and Kate and Harry have something in common; in fact, we all do. Our actions, words and deeds can not only be recorded, but also easily shared around the world. We are now truly responsible for everything we do because someone may be taping it as proof. And while we may still try to deny culpability, it is possible that it may come back to haunt us.
Did you hang out with those people? Absolutely not. No, let's go to the videotape. Were you smoking an illegal substance? No, let's look at the photos. Did you say something inappropriate? No. let's go to the recording. With the rise of cameras in smartphones, easy to place and record technology, long distance, telephoto cameras, our actions, words, and deeds are rarely hidden. Someone can be recording us. Not just individuals, either. With security top of mind, police and businesses are also recording areas to assure that a record exists
Still, the more famous we are, the more likely that someone will be watching us. The web assures that those photos, recordings, and videos can easily be shared across multiple platforms. Good and bad, we are no longer able to deny when we can too easily be recorded doing it.
