Always On: Molly Rant: don't overreact on drone privacy

1:18 /

Personal drone surveillance might be inevitable, but Molly hopes common sense and neighborly communication will prevail.

Now, while I appreciate Chris Anderson's insistence that the 3DR Drones are primarily meant for agriculture uses, I think we can all agree that that is adorably naïve. After all the history of technology, is the history of people coming up with ways to use technology that were never originally intended. And I can already think of some uses for drones that I'm not completely comfortable with. I mean this is new technology and I think all of us can imagine that they might be flying outside the window equipped with all kinds of stuff like cameras and Wi-Fi onboard. But this tech is still working itself out. And we shouldn't write a bunch of bad laws that could infringe on people's first amendment rights or shut down this technology before it even gets started. States are working on their own laws and that's a good thing. If you see your neighbor flying a drone over your house and pointing a camera at you, by all means call the cops. But maybe we should have a conversation before we bring in the big gun to the law. I think we can probably work this thing out. Excuse me. Come here.
