Surveillance has gone 360 degrees. Live video footage scrambled by jammers. Stingrays intercept phone calls. Video from drones flying overhead can immediately be parsed by facial recognition software to identify individuals. Metadata helps the NSA (and corporations) guess where we will go next, who we associate with, and more. Increasingly, the NSA, FBI and local police work together to conduct surveillance on activists--and journalists.
